A Journey for Life...

 

Advocacy

 As a member of DKG you are automatically a member of a Forum based on your geographical area. Each Forum has projects, professional reports and, when appropriate, information about proposed legislation with ramifications for educators, women and children’s welfare. DKG is also a non-governmental organization member of the United Nations with consultative status with the Economic Social community. DKG has a long relationship with UNICEF and the Committee Teaching About the UN. DKG has been recognized by the Institute of International Education for its partnership with Fulbright grants in supporting World Fellowship recipients – non-member women outside of the United States and Canada, who against financial and cultural odds came to universities in the U.S. and Canada to pursue advance degrees.

The Society is a philanthropic force on the international scene giving millions of dollars each year in scholarships, grants, and project support. As a member you are a part of that philanthropy. You impact education worldwide!



Leadership

 Every DKG member is considered a leader – a woman who wants to make a difference. How you choose to lead is up to you but DKG offers support for that leadership in many ways:

  • through chapter and state organization opportunities;
  • international executive education seminars;
  • professional learning experiences during international conferences and conventions (continuing education units are offered at some of these events and at many state organization meetings.)
  • through sharing of ideas in the DKG Communities and in the Discovery Learning Centre
Seek leadership opportunities for personal and professional growth. They are there for you.

World Fellowships are offered to those students who quality through the Fulbright Program or a team of DKG members at Canadian universities. The recipients are working on a Master's Degree or Doctorate. These students are encouraged to go back to their own countries and make a difference. The money is managed by DKGIEF. This decision is made by a committee funded by DKG.



Travel & Networking

DKG members can experience other cultures by applying for and being selected as an international speaker. Travel costs are paid for by the International Speaker Fund (ISF) and rooming costs are paid for by the host state organization.
Attending an international convention or conference and/or state organization convention affords members with the opportunity to connect with other members both locally and internationally and form life-long bonds as well as the possibility to not only view, but present workshops. 

International conventions and conferences bring DKG members together from our 17 member countries and within our five geographic regions. Internationally known presenters, themed workshop sessions, marketplace vendors and exhibitors all gather to realize the Society mission to provide personal and professional development for members. Continuing education credits, tours within the host city/region, and networking of members create quality experiences.
