The Evolution of Wisdom Exchange TV
A journey from 2011 to present day
Wisdom Exchange TV was launched as an educational resource for African women to learn, lead and succeed in life, business, and community. It was a forum where women of all disciplines were inspired by the achievements of African women, trailblazers, pioneers and leaders of many, in business, education, philanthropy, and politics. These women are the Change Agents of African companies, communities, countries, and continent.
African pioneering women inspired us to stretch our vision of what we can do, and what we can be. Strategies and tactics are shared as each woman imparts ‘HOW TO’ insights in her area of expertise. Leadership lessons from the front lines are shared and provide an opportunity for peers and future leaders to learn about what to avoid and what to do to succeed. Wisdom Exchange TV is not a profile site, but an education resource where African women lead the way for other Africans.
The Wisdom Exchange mission was to invest in, inspire, and develop the African women leaders of today for tomorrow. If more women obtain a higher education, it will have a positive rippling effect to the family, business, and communities. Women’s insight, perspective and determination is what makes an investment in a their education a way of circumventing the social injustices while promoting their gifts for the community, country and continent to appreciate.
After interviewing over seventy pioneering African women from seventeen countries, the founders (Suzanne F. Stevens and Michael K. Gingerich) of Wisdom Exchange TV were awe-inspiring.
Each of these pioneers demonstrated perseverance, tenacity, belief, and unwavering dedication to uplift the lives of others through their contributions to their community, country, and continent. Most of these women came from very humble beginnings, and yet they were rich in an ability to address a human rights violation or creating sustainable opportunities for fellow citizens all while creating a ripple effect. Their aspirations were realized because of their courage, their character, and their choice to serve society.
In the West, we often talk about leaving a legacy; that is something we think about doing later in life. African women live their legacy; it is a philosophy of how they live their life. These women are on the propitious of transforming African societies – because they lead tomorrow’s legacy today.
Pioneering African women inspired YouMeWe Group – the parent company of Wisdom Exchange TV. And through their leadership, the founders two years travelling Africa, and extensive research, Suzanne and Mike formulated the three pillars to YouMeWe.
You - Are you conscious of your contribution’s impact? Are you promoting dependency or opportunity?
Me - What do I need to know to optimize my contributions and live my most meaningful life?
We - What do we need to do consistently to amplify our impact and create a positive ripple effect?
You – Are you conscious of your contribution’s impact? Are you promoting dependency or opportunity?
Me – What do I need to know to optimize my contributions and live my most meaningful life?
We -What do we need to do consistently to amplify our impact and create a positive ripple effect?
Although African women pioneers will continue to be interview on Wisdom Exchange TV, we felt that the message of conscious-contributions™ is a universal message. We will continue to interview leaders who contribute to their communities – be it through commerce, activism, not-for-profit or volunteerism. No matter where the interviewee is from, we are always seeking to understand and learn how they consistently, consciously, contribute to the community or beyond.
The goal of the YouMeWe Group is to raise consciousness and inspire individuals and organizations to lead or participate in contributions that positively impact their community, country, or beyond. Immediate and long-term goals are promoting a more caring and more inclusive humanity.
Please join us on this journey of YouMeWe. Wisdom Exchange TV is a conduit for the voices, views, and visionaries to come into your home where you can learn so you too can lead tomorrow’s legacy today.
