#CoopAcademy - Session 1 - ‘Cooperative Branding and Identity. Let the world know who we are’
Global Office
knowledge sharing, Cooperative branding, Cooperative identity

The Coop Academy is a new #coops4dev? capacity-building initiative consisting of a series of knowledge-sharing webinars for ICA staff members from all offices. It will help them acquire new skills and better promote the cooperative model. 

Lead by Tom Ivey from dotCoop on April 24, the first session was called ‘Cooperative Branding and Identity. Let the world know who we are’. It sought to provide the tools a co-operator needs to harness the cooperative difference, to use the cooperative identity, and to hone their branding into a simple, punchy, and effective message. Participants covered case studies that demonstrate the way that marketing and messaging have been used to create a very powerful awareness of products and global issues. As the world gets more and more online, they explored the ways that cooperatives can create a global awareness of their activities and stand out in the crowded environment of the internet.

In the framework of the ICA Global Conference 'Cooperatives for Development' taking place in Kigali from 14-17 October 2019, and to introduce our parallel session 'Women’s empowerment at the forefront of sustainable development', we asked a question to our members: 'What is gender equality for you?'.

This session aimed at sensitizing male and female participants, including leaders and decision-makers in cooperatives, and reinforcing their ability to advance women empowerment and gender equality in the cooperative movement, with a particular focus on the following aspects: promoting an enabling environment to support women’s empowerment and gender equality within cooperatives and through cooperatives; making the cooperative business model more attractive to women, including by promoting female entrepreneurship.

The session also sought to cover a number of sub-themes in addition to the two core themes aforementioned, which could include among others: tools to support women cooperators, empowerment of young women, and benefits of gender equality for the wider community.

8 Jul 2019 - At a time when income inequality is rising around the world, it is good to be reminded that solutions to inequality do exist. The co-operative model is foremost among these solutions, since it contains aspects of sustainable development at its core and is based on ethical values and principles. The aim of this celebration is to increase awareness of cooperatives. The event underscores the contributions of the cooperative movement to resolving the major problems addressed by the United Nations and to strengthening and extending the partnerships between the international cooperative movement and other actors.
