The Global Women for Good, an initiative of Amazons Watch, is spearheaded by Noleen Mariappen, an Impact Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Consultant. We focus on strategically supporting and initiating positive change aligned with the UN SDGs in a measurable way, with resources, ability, expertise and impact amplified through international partnerships, working together for the greater good. We are ambassadors and initiators of strategic and sustainable development in our communities and globally, with a particular focus on improving circumstances within developing nations. We work in partnership, learning from each other, and applying transferable and innovative sustainable solutions that benefits society and economies in a scalable way. We intend to be not just a compelling and powerful voice for women, but a vehicle for action, a symbol of female leadership, female-led innovation, inspiration, and legacies of collaborative effort for greater good, across industries, communities, economies and nations. We believe in harnessing the power of networks, gaining from a collective body of knowledge and working not just to form think tanks, but partnerships of influence, that actively engage on issues, and as importantly, develop strategies and action initiatives to achieve outcomes toward the sustainable development goals
WHO WE ARE
We are ambassadors and initiators of strategic and sustainable development in our communities and globally, with a particular focus on improving circumstances within developing nations. We already have commitment from 14 present and former first ladies of nations in Africa and South America; as well as female leaders and supporters across industries from Asia, Middle East, Europe, the Americas and Africa.
Our mission is to become a collective of global female leaders who make an unprecedented collaborative, strategic effort to develop partnership-based and sustainability-focused solutions to challenges that can be adapted for local contexts and scaled globally
HOW WE WORK
We don’t believe in reinventing the wheel, and are aware that there are numerous incredible networks, action groups and working groups that are industry, region, niche and challenge-specific in nature, so our aim is work in partnership to share lessons learned, insights gained, knowledge, experience and resource- allowing for increased impact through transferrable solutions, adapted for local contexts.
