Committed actresses come together to rethink their relationship with money and create a lasting impact.
On June 27, 2023, a wind of change blew across the financial scene of the French feminist movement as the WARIKOW… Ma relation avec l’argent campaign was successfully launched. This landmark event, organized by the XOESE Fund, brought together committed actresses determined to understand the origin of the funds they receive and to rethink their financial management for sustainable impact. In a vibrant and enthusiastic atmosphere, the event began with a warm welcome and a preamble that laid the groundwork for the campaign.
The launch in a nutshell
The highlight of the day was the welcome and launch speech by FONDS XOESE Director Ms. Massan d’ALMEIDA, who captivated the audience with her inspiring message, inviting the actresses of the movement to rethink their relationship with money, to get involved in the campaign for its success, and to ask themselves questions such as:
- What is my personal relationship with money?
- What is the source of the funding we raise in the form of grants/ and what is our relationship with this type of money?
- Do we use the financial resources we receive responsibly?
At the heart of the WARIKOW campaign
A detailed presentation of the campaign highlighted its ambitious objectives and the various actions planned to achieve them. Participants were encouraged to get actively involved, take part in discussion sessions and contribute to collective thinking on best financial practices.
The campaign was also supported by the presentation of innovative, practical tools designed to accompany participants in their personal exploration of their relationship with money. An original song, entitled “Warikow”, was unveiled, setting to music the aspirations and challenges faced by the movement’s actresses, as well as the other communication tools you’ll find in the toolbox at your disposal.
