Motion 9: To direct the World Board to create a project plan for WSC 2022 to create a new IP for women in recovery.
Intent: To create a new resource for women in recovery.
Maker: Iran Region Financial Impact: There is minimal cost in creating a project plan. The cost to NAWS would be in the project itself if the WSC were to adopt and prioritize the plan.
Rationale by Region: Women in many parts of the world, including Iran, face challenges when seeking recovery in NA. In many NA communities there is not a lot of access to other recovering women. There is a tremendous amount of experience in NA with these challenges that could be shared in an IP. These include cultural barriers for women, sponsorship, attending meetings when you have small children, lack of personal resources, etc. This IP could provide new women with other women’s experience in resolving these challenges.
World Board Response: We are supportive of whatever the Fellowship chooses as a priority. For an explanation of our approach to prioritization, see our remarks in the introduction to the IPs and service tools motions on page 40.
Policy Affected: None.
