What we're about

We are a community that endorses mutual support and sisterhood. Women's empowerment is a topic that plays a role all over the world. It matters in NYC as much as in Kabul, it matters to female artists as much as for grassroots entrepreneurs and female CEOs in boardrooms.

At our meetups, you will hear about real-life success stories from various countries. What is more, you will learn concrete methods to foster your own development and that of women in your circles.

What?

At Meetup we hold Brunches and Dinners. They fall under three categories:

• Powerful You: Building Resilience through Introspection

The Individual level is all about connecting to oneself to build resilience through self-reflection and introspection.

• Powerful Peer: Building Connectedness through Communication

The interpersonal level is all about connecting to another, a peer, to build connectedness through sharing and communication.

• Powerful Community: Building Solidarity through Collaboration

The societal level is all about connecting to one’s community to build solidarity and trust through collaboration.

How?

Our gatherings are hosted with a unique method: The Philia Method! This communication method rests on the notion of a communication tool called “transformative listening”.

Come. Join us and see/feel for yourself how listening (and being listened to!) can really transform your life! :)

Where?

The global Women Empowerment Network is growing successively in many parts of the world.

Who?

The meet-ups are hosted by the Philia Project, a global women’s empowerment initiative.

Link visible for attendees

Register for the event : https://lu.ma/charisma-philia

Have you ever met people so confident you can't help but pay attention to what they're saying?
​Have you ever wished to be just as assertive and charismatic?
​To be heard, to be understood, to be in charge.
​Then we have a few questions for you, but you’ll need to be honest with yourself.

Do you ever:
​👉 Avoid social and professional situations because you struggle to start or contribute to conversations 🙈
👉 Think is it even possible for me to grab people's attention and get my points across in a confident persuasive manner? 😅
👉 Wish to become a confident courageous version of yourself 🕺
​If the answer is YES to at least one of the above, then we have some great news for you! There is a way even the quietest and most modest of us can talk to anyone with confidence. Yes, this really could be You.
​In this webinar, you will learn:
​✅ What are the steps to building any new communication skill, including assertiveness and expressiveness
✅ The fastest and most effective way to develop any communication skill, so you don’t spend your lifetime on learning
✅ How to make your new skills a part of your nature and how people always perceive you, rather than something you need to think about every time you perform them
✅ What is the #1 thing that helped Warren Buffett become one of the richest people in the world

💭 Our students said:
"When I started, I was a very bad storyteller. People would often not listen to my stories till the end, interrupt me or get distracted. Then I participated in Skillsme Academy's Storytelling gym with course, they became the game changer for me. There was a minimum of useless talking and a maximum of learning and practice. But what I enjoyed the most is that now I fell in love with telling stories because my delivery has changed so much that people want to listen to me more and more! Thank you so much Skillsme Academy!" Anastasia B.
