Mariagrazia Forcella Work:
WE Information for Social Responsibility is the new worldwide top communication instrument on philanthropy and social responsibility. WE aims at maximizing the impact of philanthropy.
WE is a media not for profit. WE is:
- A media of investigative journalism on society, social change and social needs, helping socially responsible entrepreneurs to identify and detect causes to tackle,
- A hub to connect multiple stakeholders concerned about social responsibility
- A forum where potential beneficiaries of philanthropy can make their voice heard,
- An instrument to evolve from “dispersed philanthropy” to “strategic philanthropy”.
WE is supported by NESMA, the network of socially responsible entrepreneurs.
WE believe in RESPONSIBILITY and in SOLIDARITY
WE put human beings first
WE believe in participation to the society
WE believe in empathy with other people
WE do not believe red tape, bureaucracy, inflexibility, can solve any problem
WE believe in the fact each person has to take his responsibility in the society, in order to improve our world.
Mariagrazia Forcella is the Editor in Chief of WE
NESMA is an association of socially responsible entrepreneurs.
Membership is by invitation only.
We invite to participate entrepreneurs (and other donors) who distinguished themselves for the activities they launched aiming at improving the social framework where they operate.
NESMA is a forum where to conceive and consolidate the successful impact at local and global level of SR (socially responsible) initiatives.
NESMA helps the creation of affinity groups, encouraging each participant to undertake the set of actions in which he excels. The participants mutually reinforce the endeavours of each other. The affinity groups bring distinctive added value to the activities of the individual participants. It is the concept of “catalytic philanthropy” (as developed in the fall 2009 edition of Stanford Social Innovation Review).
Almost everywhere in the world, philanthropy is facing a period of considerable increase. Moreover, in many cases, the capacity of philanthropy in tackling social issues has largely bypassed the capacity of the Welfare States: even though the financial resources given by philanthropists are limited in comparison with those devoted by States to social policies, a better management, a more flexible approach, a bureaucracy-free methodology, have produced significantly successful results.
Nevertheless, more and better communication is still needed.
NESMA aims at maximising the social and the global impact of the efforts undertaken by its members.
NESMA aims at achieving the following objectives :
- Communicating philanthropy, through the new media online WE
- Enhancing the social impact at local communities level
- Increasing the international coordination for a global impact.
