  • Leading with Purpose: Tackling Structural Barriers to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

     
    The Global Women's Caucus and the Global Black Caucus are honored to have Dr. Rosabeth Moss Kanter, the Ernest  L. Arbukle Professor, Harvard Business School, speak on the continuing challenges of gender equality and diversity in leadership. Dr. Kanter first identified significant barriers to the advancement of women in the corporate world in the classic, award-winning book, Men and Women of the Corporation. Later research identified how being a minority in a group, or a "token", can affect one's performance due to enhanced visibility and performance pressure, illustrated brilliantly in the landmark video, "A Tale of 'O': On Being Different".  

    Professor Kanter will unravel questions such as:  Where has there been progress? What challenges and pitfalls remain? What issues are universal, and which vary by ethnicity, race, and social class? How can we “think outside the building” (beyond current structures and constraints) to mobilize activists for a more just and equitable world? Join us on Tuesday, September 21st at 11 am EDT to gain insights from this formidable leader on working towards a more just and equitable world. 

     
    RSVP below! You will receive your link with a reminder mail shortly before the event.


    ROSABETH MOSS KANTER 

    Rosabeth Moss Kanter holds the Ernest L. Arbuckle Professorship at Harvard Business School, specializing in  strategy, innovation, and leadership for change. Her strategic and practical insights guide leaders worldwide  through teaching, writing, and direct consultation to major corporations, governments, and start-up ventures. She  co-founded the Harvard University-wide Advanced Leadership Initiative, guiding its planning from 2005 to its  launch in 2008 and serving as Founding Chair and Director from 2008-2018 as it became a growing international  model for a new stage of higher education preparing successful top leaders to apply their skills to national and  global challenges. Author or co-author of 20 books, her latest book, Think Outside the Building: How Advanced  Leaders Can Change the World One Smart Innovation at a Time, has won a number of accolades

    The former chief Editor of Harvard Business Review, Professor Kanter has been repeatedly named to lists such as the “50 most powerful women in the world” (Times of London), and the “50 most influential business thinkers in  the world” (Thinkers 50, and in November 2019 received their biannual Lifetime Achievement Award). She has  received 24 honorary doctoral degrees, as well as numerous leadership awards, lifetime achievement awards, and  

    prizes. These include Distinguished Career Awards from the Academy of Management and the American  Sociological Association (Organizations, Occupations and Work Section); the World Teleport Association's  “Intelligent Community Visionary of the Year” award; the Pinnacle Award for Lifetime Achievement from the  Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce; the International Leadership Award from the Association of Leadership  Professionals; the Warren Bennis Award for Leadership Excellence; the Everett Rogers Innovation Award from  the Norman Lear Center for media and society; and several Harvard Business Review McKinsey Awards for the  years’ best articles. Other awards honor her thought leadership and community impact. 

    Before Think Outside the Building, her previous book, MOVE: Putting America's Infrastructure Back in the Lead,  a New York Times Editors’ Choice, is a sweeping look across industries and technologies shaping the future of  mobility and the leadership required for transformation. Her book The Change Masters was named one of the  most influential business books of the 20th century (Financial Times); SuperCorp: How Vanguard Companies  Create Innovation, Profits, Growth, and Social Good, one of the ten best business books of the year by  Amazon.com; Evolve! Succeeding in the Digital Culture of Tomorrow, one of the five best books of the year by  the Toronto Star. Her book Confidence: How Winning & Losing Streaks Begin & End, a New York Times bestseller (also a #1 Business Week bestseller), describes the culture of high-performance organizations compared  with those in decline and shows how to lead turnarounds, whether in businesses, schools, sports teams, or  countries. Men & Women of the Corporation, winner of the C. Wright Mills award for the best book on social  issues and often called a classic, offers insight into the individual and organizational factors that promote success  or perpetuate disadvantage for women; a related video, A Tale of ‘O’: On Being Different, is a widely-used tool  for diversity training. A related book, Work & Family in the United States, set a policy agenda, honored by a  coalition of university centers creating in her honor the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for the best work/family  research. Another award-winning book, When Giants Learn to Dance, shows how to master the new terms of  competition at the dawn of the global information age. World Class: Thriving Locally in the Global Economy identifies the dilemmas of globalization for cities, a theme continuing in her book MOVE

    She advises numerous CEOs and senior executives through her consulting group and also serving as a Senior  Advisor for IBM’s Global Citizenship portfolio from 1999-2012. She has served on many business and non-profit  boards, such as City Year, the urban “Peace Corps” addressing the school dropout crisis through national service,  and on commissions including the Governor’s Council of Economic Advisors, the U.S. Malcolm Baldrige  National Quality Award, and others. She speaks widely, and has shared the platform with Presidents, Prime  Ministers, and CEOs at major events, such as the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and national  industry conferences in over 20 countries. Before joining the Harvard Business School faculty, she held tenured  professorships at Yale University and Brandeis University and was a Fellow at Harvard Law School,  simultaneously holding a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her Ph.D. is from the University of Michigan. --December 2020

    Make "Good Trouble"

    and Save Our Democracy!

    A fundraiser in celebration of the life and work of the late Georgia Congressman and Civil Rights leader, John R. Lewis.

    john_lewis_selma_1965.1c.jpg 

    Democrats Abroad is commemorating Congressman John Lewis with two online screenings of the documentary "John Lewis - Get in the Way" on July 11, various actions days after Congress resumes legislative business, and a Forum on July 17, the one-year anniversary of his passing.

    Often described as the conscience of the Congress, John Lewis was a friend to Democrats Abroad. To raise funds for DA’s GOTV efforts, we ask everyone—whether you attend or not—to donate $19.65—or for those who wish to be a Gold Star Supporter, $80 representing the 80 years of John Lewis’ extraordinary, courageous life.

    Please join Democrats Abroad to honor the memory of John Lewis and carry forward the flame of his dedication to voting rights for all.

    Kendra Borgen's 2021 Birthday Fundraiser

    Having volunteered in politics since I was a teenager I have found a wonderful home within Democrats Abroad – an all volunteer organization.

    We run on blood, sweat, tears, & donations!

    During my time in Democrats Abroad leadership I’ve noticed how expensive it is to be involved. Going to regional and global meetings is fundamental in getting good work done and is important and instrumental in team building. However, it comes at each individual’s own expense.

    I believe everyone should be able to volunteer at the highest level and want to help keep these meetings accessible to people, who may not be as financially flexible, by fundraising for Democrats Abroad Travel Fund.

    I had hoped to spend my 40th Birthday in an exotic location but luckily I’m in Amsterdam and you can help me celebrate my 40th birthday virtually. Please help me reach my fundraising goal: $2021 in 2021 

    Got $40 for my 40th? – Or even $4, or $400 if you’re so inclined –  hit that donate button.

    I cannot wait until we can celebrate in person together again.

    Candice Kerestan's 2021 Birthday Fundraiser

    Candice-Kerestan-DAG2020.3c.jpg

    As many of you know, Democrats Abroad has been a big part of my life since I moved to Germany seven(!) years ago, and it’s remarkable what the organization has accomplished in that time! This past election cycle, we engaged Americans abroad like never before and delivered decisive votes in races across the United States.

    But as they say, “after the election is before the election”, and it’s important to me that we continue setting up Democrats for success in 2022. As I start this next year of my life, I invite you to join me in making a contribution to Democrats Abroad, an organization near and dear to me.

    D4D_Ballot_Week.pngDialing for Democracy is a calling marathon
    and global Democrats Abroad fundraiser.

    To win in November, we need to increase voter participation from abroad, which means making sure that overseas voters receive their ballots by September 19 (date mandated by federal law) and that they are sent back to the United States on time. 

    Given the Trump Administration's relentless attempts to weaken a fundamental pillar of our democracy — voting — we can't take any risks this year when it comes to our ballots. [Mobile device users, please scroll down to donate!]

    Generous sponsors like yourself will help Democrats Abroad reach all members from September 22-24, shortly after ballots have been sent, to confirm that they've received theirs, and inform them on how to promptly return them to their respective voting jurisdictions.

    DONORS: If you are sponsoring a specific caller, BEFORE you select an amount, write the caller's name in the box at left!

    Donate $50 and you’re sponsoring 200 calls!

    $250—1000 calls   $500—2000 calls   $1000—4000 calls

    Democrats Abroad will be making 100,000s of calls this fall, and your contribution will help make this outreach possible.

    Global Pub Quiz Fun(draiser)

    Online-DAGlobalPubQuiz-NL.jpeg

    We're looking forward to meeting your team -- or matching you with other Democrats around the world.

    For each round we'll send out a google form for you to fill in the answers. Volunteers will grade each round and the winning team(s) will receive never-ending fame and fortune.*

    Ninety percent of the funds raised from this event will go directly to GOTV. Did you know that just $5 USD can reach 125 voters?

    The other ten percent will go to DA's travel fund. As a young-ish volunteer without disposable income I can tell you the #1 issue with getting involved at a higher level of commitment is being unable to afford to travel to the regional and global meetings. It's important to show up in person as it helps build relationships we need to keep up the good work. We want to have a big tent party and that perhaps means helping our younger or income-sensitive volunteers to be part of the organization. 

    Date: Saturday May 30th  |  Where: RSVP for ZOOM link!
    Quiz Start: 7:30pm (CEST / Paris time)

    For any questions about Democrats Abroad Pub Quiz, please contact DANL's Andrew Tucker: [email protected]

    You can help by making a donation for this great event, so reserve your place as soon as possible!
