2025 ~ BluePrint of WE

For each partner in a marriage; or, each team member, BofWE asks 30 mins of paper and pen journaling:

Monday Lunch with Experts

To uncover more up-to-now-unknown, Best Practices like BofWE, Women in Congress (WinC) began Monday Lunch with Experts. This was open to all elected members of Congress, their staff; and, anyone else who wished to learn Best Practices in various fields, male leadership had ignored, neglected and downplayed.

Cultural Creatives go mainstream

Out of these meetings, Women were led to understand the significance of Cultural Creatives. Experts informed women how CCs had been around since 1965 not only since Paul Ray’s 2001 marketing book. WinC came to understand CCs were their ideal voter and ideal office employee.

The Heads-down Generation

Women’s Summer Conference #2 was “hijacked” by Mothers against Suicide who demanded to address the “heads-down generations,” the iGen — Generation Internet (Jean Twenge, 2017), those born 1995–2012. “Social media” is not social at all.

Dare we remake colleges?

Privately, thru the whole creation process, women staff and their supporters feared re-making college could be their Waterloo. Was WinC reaching too far, too high? Go Slow members wondered if any set of professionals in Washington DC was knowledgeable enuf about college curriculums to remake colleges wholesale. Women used their self-doubts to inform them where they needed more expert input, more study and more pilot experiments.

From New Colleges project…

It took a while to find a workable format, group process and principal employees to govern the process of:

Looking forward

How things look from the year 2120

In the 2020s, you live in a time, where SpaceShip Earth is on fire, crashing and burning. After 1750 or 1850, as mainstream male-led, Western Patriarchy corrupted into abject, one-sided materialism, Earth was brought to a precipice, a planet-wide Choice Point.
