PowHERhouse Impact Media Group Launches The Leader Path
August 23, 2021 BC Canada, PowHERhouse Impact Media Group announced the August 25th reveal of THE LEADER PATH, an adaptive and responsive path and community of practice for social impacters and local-to-global changemakers. It is an online hub and workspace for leaders of impact to gather in on-going practice for progressive change.
PowHERhouse Impact Media Group, soon to be celebrating their eighth birthday as a Social Impact and Impact Media organization is 100% Indigenous owned and has been developing this four point process of activation for the last three years. Based on continued conversation and feedback the organization has received from the social, political, academic and cultural leaders they serve, The Leader Path is an ever evolving, dynamic and responsive process that is designed to support leaders of impact who are developing, emerging or already actively working in their specific field of change.
The Leader Path is guided by four foundational principles: Seven Generational Thinking and Decision Making, Listening & Storytelling, Deliberate Weaving & Co-Creation, Wholeness & Reconciliation in Action. These principles are global in their perspective encouraging social impacters and changemakers to practice whole, conscious leadership with an integrated awareness of Indigenous knowledge.
Each month consists of four activation and implementation touch points:
- Intention Setting, Clarity, and Accountability (on the New Moon)
- Wisdom Gathering from GATHER for HER (Bi-Weekly Listening Series)
- Seven Generation Inquiry and Solution Finding Sessions (Bi-Weekly Wisdom Circles)
- Pitching and Preparation to Invite and Access Local-to-Global Partnerships (Monthly Incubator)
‘The feedback we kept receiving from changemakers was the need for an intercultural, intergenerational, and intersectional space to gather, learn and be in deliberate practice of what we now know to be an emergent skill-set that is as conscious as it is practical. They wanted a place to pitch ideas, take cross-cultural risks, and be supported by other like-minded leaders who get their specific points of exhaustion and inspiration. Changemakers and impacters work at all hours. They aren’t nine to fivers with a 40-hour work cycle. They are more like First Responders than entrepreneurs because everyday they are out there adapting, pivoting, and responding passionately in an effort to change the world.’
- Tina Overbury, Communications Director of PowHERhouse Impact Media Group
The Leader Path was developed by founder and Impact Media Producer Charlene SanJenko from the Splatsin Tribe, Storyteller and Artist of Impact Tina Overbury, who lives on Nexwlélexm (Bowen Island), home of the Skwxwú7mesh people, and further influenced and evolved by Systems Strategist and Political Consultant, Christina Benty whose home is on the lands of the Ktunaxa people, and Metis Social Impacter Sharon Marshall from the lands of the Snuneymux people. These four leaders of impact call themselves The Braid of PowHERhouse which speaks to their guiding principles of deliberate weaving of co-creation. The four also host a weekly web series called GATHER for HER, an interactive conversation series and wisdom circle featuring global social impact champions which has been integrated into the curriculum of The Leader Path.
