Featuring and Connecting People and Programs to Accelerate Cultural, Social, and Economic Impact
Paksy Plackis-Cheng, founder of impactmania, is awarded the U.S. Embassy Public Diplomacy Grant for Women of Impact! The Program will travel to New Zealand, November 2019. Paksy will be collaborating with Brittany Teei, co-founder and CEO of KidsCoin for Women of Impact New Zealand. Women of Impact will be welcomed by the U.S. Consulate General who will also host a public event in Auckland. Join us!
Paksy captured more than 1 million words from 150+ women in 30+ countries who drive cultural, social, and economic impact—from artists, ambassadors, scientists, social entrepreneurs, a World-Champion boxer, to a Nobel Peace prize nominee. These women speak about their work, challenges, and avenues to impact.
The project features a foreword by Pat Mitchell, first female President and CEO of PBS & co-curator of TED Women. The book is part of a museum exhibition and panel discussions with women from the project. Learn more >
