A few days ago the World marked the 2017 International Women’s Day. The two dominant themes for the year are “Be Bold for Change” sponsored by Ernst and Young and “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030” by the United Nations.
For us at C4C, our very reason for existence is to inspire and empower young people everywhere, through the effective use of communication technologies. Never has the world seen a greater plethora of these technologies.
The commencement of a new year is as usual a time for reflection. A time for new hopes and dreams and resolutions! As we move with the rest of the world into 2017, we join millions of others who are reflecting on their work so far. We reflect on progress made and not made! We reflect on why we have done some of the things we did and hope to continue to do.
I believe that for real progress to be made in any sphere of life there has to be change over time. Nothing is so good that it cannot be improved upon. Improvements come with change something of the status quo. But the bottom line is that the change chosen and embarked upon has to be positive and has to be the one with the potential for the most good. If not it cannot be a change for progress, a change for better, or a change for good.
