Play the advantages of women constantly improve themselves
Progress of the times and the needs of people living with HIV, so that more and more women are out of the House, involved in AIDS prevention and controlwork, and make some contribution, the emergence of a large number ofoutstanding women community workers. However, although some women have ahigh work ethic, but in attitude, working ability, there is a certain lackof work skills, so that their work cannot be quickly effective, there is asense of ambition. Result of which is: whether infected women and womenorganizations, and men and men‘s organizations to share resources, there isstill a lot of interest differences, women in leadership and decision-makingpower was significantly weaker than the male.
As a woman, how to play to their own advantages, and constantly improvethemselves and do community work, improving policy influence? The paper onthese issues, and a female friend has an AC:
Women community workers vulnerable to misunderstandings:
1, do not have enough confidence, always think this is no good, that doesnot work, can’t bear the burden and responsibility;
2, good at learning, not willing to work under pressure;
3, better at specific jobs, global awareness is not strong, the trees, thetrees.
4, that “her husband and son“ is the vocation, work and family when there is a contradiction, of course, give up work;
Women have to do community work, I think, can range from a few self–capacity–building aspects: narrative convenience, I divided it into threepoints, five sense:
Three main points:
One, full of confidence:
Believing in yourself is the best! Many has do has mother of women are know with appreciated education to education himself of children, but rarely will this thought with in himself body, also no carried out work, on to himself “prison”, not believes himself is “can do event”, dang himself made results to Shi, think “nothing great of, others also such”, once work in the appeared setbacks and errors, on think himself “nothing”. So, we have to docommunity work, first to establish full confidence, “days will be a greatman,“ with confidence.
With confidence, you will want to believe in their strengths, being willing to show their best side.
With confidence, no matter how old you are facing difficulties, you will never give up, you will face, and ways to deal with it, and your work inthis overcome difficulty and constantly progress and development.
I gained confidence, when you face a new areas and opportunities are notafraid afraid, but bold attempt, expanded his own face and work areas;
So, I think, increase their self-confidence is an important first step.
Second, extensive study:
A wide range of learning include books, learn from others, to their ownlearning:
“Books to use enough“—whether in the field, in order to be successful,there is at least one thing in common, that is, continuous learning. Many friends think, age big has, what also learn not has, but, as long as you have active of mentality insisted learning, let learning became a habits, you on can feel to, “scholar don’t 3rd, and Dang sit up and”, you of mentality variable has, you of language variable has, you on work and has new of idea and skills has, you face challenge and difficult Shi solution problem of method and more has, you in unknowingly in the growth has.
So, learn where to start?
1, recommendations first of all, learn job–related knowledge, it will makeyour job easier, such as basic knowledge of HIV/AIDS, national andinternational trends, relevant policies and regulations of the State of theepidemic, knowledge, team–building skills and knowledge, such as NGO;
2, and understand some and engaged in work has contact of other field of knowledge and work, as do women work, not only to care this field of women problem, also to care other field, as rural women participation, and floating women problem, and feminist movement, related knowledge; do children work, also to care other field of as children support taught, and children interests, and children development, and children rescue, aspects content, we will found, many problem is communicates of, understand they of work, also can on himself of work has inspired;
3, read some books on interpersonal and sharpen your mind, to keep a correctOutlook on life, values, and a good attitude, expanding horizons, hemodified his thought pattern.
Learning from others:
1, learn from the experts: experts not only in theory, but in practice hasaccumulated a lot of experience, we can talk to experts about theircommunities and their own work, the experts will give us good suggestions;
2, to learn from the community of talents: again, there are many excellentcommunity organiser in the long-term work has accumulated a wealth ofexperience and skills, difficulties encountered in the work we have a chatwith them, they‘ll have a lot of very practical approach will also give usgood inspiration.
Self learning: continuous summing up at work and constantly modify theshortcomings and deficiencies, and constantly develop our good points andtheir progress.
Third, continuous efforts
So-called as you sow so shall you reap, if you want to do a good job, solidefforts is essential, we need to consider our work as a career–dedicated,professional, using their hard efforts to achieve excellent results.
1, to establish as a target population‘s consciousness of service, to havethe courage to pay;
2, to continue research and AIDS prevention and control of the newsituation, new characteristics, new changes and needs of the targetpopulation, using this as the basis for our work and a guide;
3, in the long-term activity and practice, formed its own characteristicsand patterns of activity, perseverance and innovation according to thechanging situation;
4, work hard to avoid setbacks and disappointments, to learn patience andpersistence, and never give up.
We often say “fake words and not the mules“, no matter how much we have highideals and dreams of a happy, no matter how passionately we want tocontribute to the community, based on solid work in communities, withremarkable achievements based on cannot be ignored.
We are talking about three points above, the following five:
A, global awareness:
Not only to see the Organization, problems in the region, not only to seetoday‘s issue, also to pay attention to understand the big picture, theglobal situation of the HIV/AIDS, and the prospects for the development ofthe organization.
1, continuous learning, to grasp the national principles and policies,develop their own levels of policy and policy insights;
2, to be resourceful, and according to the situation and requirements in thefield of the Organization, make a decision conducive to organizationaldevelopment to ensure stable, healthy and sustainable development of theOrganization;
3, the active participation of the community and community hot topicdiscussions on major issues, an active women‘s voices, for more decision-making power and policy influence. Not because they do not understand “can’tsay“ do not disdain also “don’t want to say“, but do not be afraid ofoffending people and “not“.
Second, the sense of:
And “false words and not the mules“ that corresponds to our women andwomen‘s organizations are more “light practice saying“? “ The mules “, manywomen‘s organizations at the grass-roots did a lot of work, but alwaysconsidered to be“ right “, not to promote itself, did not let the communityknow more about yourself, which is very regrettable.
So, we want to establish a sense of communication, strengthen their public relations ability:
1, and the Foundation and other organizations to communicate: we womenshould learn to promote themselves and their team, to let people know aboutyour accomplishments, knowing your thoughts and ability to make a positiveand positive impression, it can also provide new opportunities for theirfuture development;
2, and other community organizations to communicate: to showcase theirexpertise, learning best practice and mutual complementarity, mutual win–wincooperation, expand the scope of their work and share the stage, establish agood environment for organizational development;
3, communication within the Organization: “cheerleader“ and “coach“,stimulate internal staff enthusiasm, release of staff work, team spirit, andpromote the development of the Organization;
4, communication with target groups: keep abreast of target group needs andfor specific target groups for the project and the work of the suggestions,and lay the Foundation for better services for the target group in thefuture.
Innovation is mainly embodied in the following three areas: doing thingsthat others have not done, do other people do bad things, not doing thingsthat others do.
So, to develop their sense of innovation, their work and the team continueto grow, continue to grow:
1, their results do not meet, to have a change of consciousness, to be bold,not afraid of failure, which is a prerequisite for innovation;
2, in order to continuously learn new knowledge, new changes, found in theneeds of the community and its work points, which is the Foundation forinnovation;
3, from efforts to study new situations, explore new methods, new ways oftrying to put forward demand for newer, better, more in line with thecommunity‘s ideas and practices, this is an innovative approach.
4, in the process of innovation, constantly sum up experience, surmountingthe shortcoming, so that his work has a new look, new changes bring newsupport and services to the target population, which is the goal ofinnovation.
Four, gender consciousness
We do not rely on our gender, but to keep in play a woman specialist towork, but also to overcome some of the common ailments in women.
1, consider the issue more from the woman‘s point of view: the problem is inwhat‘s the difference between men and women? Men and women experiencedifferent?
2, female–oriented quality culture, prominent female character strengths,such as compassion, tolerance, flexibility, understanding, bearing in mindthe male character of the benefits, such as vision, generosity, stronglogical thinking and so on;
3, personal style and glamour: from costumes to talk, stay feminine eleganceand generous, both to increase their self-confidence, can also lead toimpress others, give yourself more opportunities.
4, overcoming some common faults in women, small problems.
Five, sense of balance:
The balance of family and career on the one hand, on the other hand is thebalance between business and health, I do not want our friends are“workaholics“, especially people living with friends, the body will never bethe capital of revolution, must understand that “give“, will be “get“, do not have to worry about without zitan baht to compete.
To learned do a “thousand hand goddess”, arrangements good body, and family, and career Zhijian of relationship; also to has “seesaw” of art, in body, and family, and career Zhijian looking for best balance points, sometimes in concern body Shang more pay some, sometimes in career Shang more pay some, sometimes in family in the more pay some, dang General Shang of also is balance of.
When we travel, ready for the family in advance, keep phones whiletraveling, networking, comes back to buy the family some specialty, is a wayto keep family;
When the work is going well, and the family shared elation when working whenthere is a problem, seek help from family, you know, family is always thebest backing;
No matter how you outside scenery or fail, how to reason or compromise, inthe family you are the gentle wife and loving mother, you will not change in the family, your lover, and more for children cannot be changed.
Of course, this balance must be established on the basis of family support,therefore, for family support and encouragement is all the work of theFoundation.
Finally, I sincerely hope that our women through its continuous efforts,coupled with social support and help, in the area of AIDS prevention and treatment to win your own piece of heaven and Earth, earn respect, wonplaudits, opening up a vast piece of heaven and Earth, a wonderfulinterpretation of the life.
