Feminine Light Leadership

Bringing Feminine Light, Leadership
And Voices to the World

Feminine Light Leadership™:

I-WE is establishing an education clearinghouse for the ideas and efforts of wise women and forward-thinking men who assert a new voice dedicated to the health and healing of humanity by recognizing gender identity. I-WE respects men and supports the lives of girls and women as spiritual leaders.

Women have a specific contribution to the peace of the planet. Transformation toward a more enlightened world happens as women and men come together to provide the basis for a new co-leadership framework, supporting one another and fostering peace.

As human beings, women and men are equal, yet their significance is distinctly different. The knowledge and the balancing of power between women and men is the basis for healthy co-creation. This partnership is the foundation of Feminine Light Leadership.

Donald Steinberg, Deputy Administrator Ambassador for the U.S. Agency for International Development on CARE’s 2012, 101st International Women’s Day Conference when asked “Will a peace agreement work?” after viewing Abigail’ Disney’s documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell he states, ”unless it involves women, the answer is usually no.”

The Feminine Light Symposiums, conducted around the world, are designed to highlight and promote the leadership and strategic work of I-WE, nonprofits, businesses and unique individuals. Women’s leadership brings change through an enlightened healing vision for a specific purpose and influence.

The first Feminine Light Symposium was held on The International Day for Tolerance, November 16th, 2011 at The Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, California.


The Feminine Light in the Middle East Symposium 2011

The Feminine Light in the Middle East Symposium was designed to promote the strategic work of I-WE, nonprofits, businesses, and unique individuals who realize that women with a vision and value are key to bringing a greater peace to that region. On Unesco’s International Day for Tolerance, The Feminine Light in the Middle East Symposium: A Vision of Women that honors our Worth and encouraged us to create a life of Purpose: A vision, A Gender Declaration of Interdependence, that offered unconditional support to Men.

On this day, we showed gratitude for our blessings and achievements and joined with others creating a voice of tolerance, leading the way toward greater personal and global fulfillment. Today, we looked toward the women in the Middle East and explored ways to support them in their security, self-worth and purpose. Together we worked toward a harmony that found balance between the feminine and the masculine, leaving a healthy legacy for our children.

This day was the official launch of the Institute of Women’s Enlightenment and gave birth to an action plan for working together toward the common good of women everywhere. We:

  • Developed our consciousness with regard to the nature of our identity as women
  • Promoted an exchange of ideas that will live on after the event
  • Created a vision of understanding and encouragement
  • Found practical ways to support women and girls in the Middle East
  • Developed an action plan for ensuring that women’s and girl’s voices are heard

It was a day of discovery, illumination, definition, and enlightenment. Also we enjoyed music, soulful sounds, savory tastes and celebrations of the Star Rose Awards.
