Mission: InterMix Voices of Humanity is a new form of Social Media designed to remake the way humanity sees itself, giving us a positive all-inclusive global consciousness that has gender equality built in.
What InterMix does: On one level, InterMix acts as a listserve for small groups or organizations. What differentiates InterMix is that it allows the groups to combine with each other in discussions - perfect for coalition building. On top of that, a simple rating technology allows the combined groups to have "decision periods" where they elect messages to represent the grass-roots participants from all the coalition organizations. Finally, the software recombines the participants by gender and age, so not only is there an overall highest rated message, and a message from each group, but the results of a decision period also include the message written by a woman and rated highest by the women and similarly for men, youth, middle-age and seniors: these are the voices of humanity that are the chief outcome of the process.
Our Program: Currently we are setting up a "Send a Message to UN Women" decision period in our main Voices of Humanity - Order out of Chaos discussion. Participants will each write a message to the new Exec Dir of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka. For International Women's Day (IWD) we will send Ms Mlambo-Ngcuka the winning messages from each of the six voices of humanity: Voice of Women, of Men, Youth, Experience, Wisdom and Humanity-as-One.
Our Strategy: We are targeting the hundreds of United Nations Associations around the world. Our Ambassadors (see below) will try to reach each of these organizations both directly and indirectly through students at universities located near the many UNA headquarters. Needless to say, those students will be contacted primarily via facebook and other social media.
