Hello to all my World Pulse sisters and brothers!

Welcome to a new website designed to enable more voices, more collaboration, and more powerful movements on the issues that are important to you.

We are excited to hear what you will think of our new site, because your voice brought us to where we are today: a movement of women and allies from 190 countries who are speaking out and connecting in our safe, supportive online space and making change together. You have been a huge part of building this community which is unique in the world, and we hope you'll participate with the new site, grow your leadership and make powerful connectionsl. Your VOICE will power World Pulse into a powerful force of millions of women's voices that the world cannot ignore!

You'll notice some changes that we've made based on surveys and listening to you over the past few years. Here are some of them:

- Faster for low-bandwidth connections
- Mobile friendly
- New features for your journals to make your voice stand out, presentation for video and photos.
- Private/public setting for your journal, and also groups.
- French language version
- New spaces, hub pages and groups where you can connect with each other around issues and share knowledge and resources. We are starting with two issues our community has voiced most interested in: Economic Empowerment, Leadership, and rolling out other topics in the coming year.

If you have any questions you can read the Frequently Asked Questions.
www.worldpulse.com/en/about-us/frequently-asked-questions

Most importantly - there will be more opportunities for you be a leader with World Pulse, to be a welcomer, a listener so everyone feels heard, or to lead movements on issues or topic important to you.

Also World Pulse will be offering more training how to get your voice into the world, build movements. We'll also do more spotlighting and channeling of your voices on key issues and topics to forums to help make them louder.

We'll be adapting the site throughout the year so please let us know what more you would like to see. Think of it as if we are launching a new world center, and this is the housewarming party. We invite you to come in as part of the family and help arrange the furniture so we can welcome more people in. Later in the year, we'll be inviting a lot more people to come in - have a bigger party ! So we need your help now!

First Steps
- One of the first things to do when you log on is update your profile, spruce it up, make sure everything transferred ok
- Check your tags! Notice that you can now add country tags!

Many more exciting features and capabilities are coming, this is just the beginning!

Your unique voice and your vision is our inspiration.

Our mantra is "No One Speaks for me - I speak for Myself." Speak for yourself the future you want to see. Together, we can make it happen!!

Celebration of our journey ahead,

Jensine Larsen
Founder and CEO

congratulations to the WP Team for the new website

I love the arrangement and still aclamatising with the new changes. however i note that I cant easily attache photographs as before. The font is okay.

I also note that our groups no longer exist. Does this mean we have have to create new groups. But even then I dont see the option of creating groups *is it centralised now?)

The resources are great

Thank you for the new website. I will continue giving my feed back as I browse through

My sister -

I love your slogan. Thank you for your wishes and all your feedback - which we are eager to hear! It is good to have you testing all the areas, we are honored. I will have our team check out the photograph attaching.

Yes, regarding groups, the team has taken a new approach - starting with a few groups with stronger support for the leaders, training and staff support. We are all learning together with the Leadership and Economic Empowerment groups, and then there will be rolling out of many additional topics and regions, and also opportunity for community members to start their own groups as well. This is to help give group leaders the tools to successfully run an active group.

We are eager to keep hearing all your feedback!

Jaisine,

I appreciate your leadership in developing  such an effective forum for  " collective learning" for the development professionals and the grass root community. This platform would paly a pivotal role in propagating the phiolospohy of " Uphold the Rights of the Poor and Oppressed", as I  opine..

My best wishes to  You and WP team for creating this new website and I  shall  try provide my periodic feed backs on the struggles of the poor in evolving a "suiatble safety  nets" for their livelihoods at the grassroots though some case stoires, videos etc. .

Thanking you.
