TEDxPanteionUniversityWomen, was part of a global group of events directly connected to the TED Women event in San Francisco. It was a highly successful effort in pointing out and discussing a variety of gender, sexuality and female empowerment-related themes. The touching (streamed and live) talks really struck a chord in everyone attending, making us want to keep doing such events.

Ξένια Παπασταύρου

Από τα παιδικά της χρόνια, η Ξένια ονειρευόταν να εργαστεί σε μία ανθρωπιστική οργάνωση σε μία μακρινή χώρα, ένα όνειρο όμως που τελικά πραγματοποιήθηκε μέσα στο ίδιο της το σπίτι όταν εμπνεύστηκε τη δημιουργία ενός δικτυακού τόπου που θα συνδέει ανθρώπους που έχουν ανάγκη φαγητού με αυτούς που έχουν περισσευούμενο φαγητό ώστε τίποτα να μην πηγαίνει χαμένο. Έτσι το Μάιο του 2011, ξεκίνησε το ΜΠΟΡΟΥΜΕ ως κόμβος επικοινωνίας που σώζει φαγητό και να συντονίζει την προσφορά του σε αυτούς που το έχουν περισσότερη ανάγκη. Σήμερα εργάζεται στο Ίδρυμα Μποδοσάκη όπου συντονίζει το “Giving for Greece”, μία πρωτοβουλία που έχει ως σκοπό να εμπνέει όσους επιθυμούν να προσφέρουν στην ανακούφιση πραγματικών κοινωνικών αναγκών στην Ελλάδα -ιδιώτες, εταιρείες ή φορείς- και να τους δίνει παρέχει συμβουλές και κατευθύνσεις, καθώς και το κατάλληλο πλαίσιο, ώστε να το πράττουν αποτελεσματικά, με τον μέγιστο δυνατό κοινωνικό αντίκτυπο και όρους λογοδοσίας και διαφάνειας.
