Meta Gamma Delta would love to partner with MetaCartel on a real meta issue! The basic idea: if we want to fund more women-led initiatives, we need to actively bring more women in the door. We propose an end-to-end solution to recruit women from adjacent industries, provide educational opportunity and mentorship, with basic income for an onboarding period of 3-6 months. This all leads to help with job placement and start-up initiatives. Building the pipeline and making sure women are prepped to succeed and contribute to making the ecosystem blossom. We are uniquely positioned to create such a program, and our vision is to make an impact on a pain point that is widely felt amongst DAOs and other orgs.
More information is in the links below. A couple of key points: after discussion in the MC Town Hall, our ask is $25,000 to set up the initial phase of this project: create a core working group, design the program, set up 3-4 key partnerships, and create detailed budget & milestones. That will enable us to continue fundraising with more detailed plans, and to use the next money raised to actually run a pilot program with 3-5 women. This $25k is a small portion of the envisioned fund, but it is absolutely foundational. We are truly grateful for your consideration.
Partnerships will be key to this project, and we are happy to look at ways that we can partner with MetaCartel in mutually beneficial ways. One idea we heard was creating a pipeline for new & qualified MC members. We also of course want this to create fundable projects as well as new DAO contributors. We are open to your ideas.
Here’s our general proposal on Giveth:
