We are building a small Impact DAO with the goal of identifying, challenging and rebuilding systems that prevent women achieving financial equity. Our first mission? Curate 16 Round Table discussions at The Stack World Conference.
What is a DAO? A DAO is a decentralized autonomous organisation. A community with collective ownership underpinned by blockchain technology. Think a group chat with a shared bank account or a web3 version of a traditional co-op. Members might pool their resources to buy a piece or a land, an album or even The Constitution. A DAO usually has a specific mission and purpose and everyone participates to make it happen.
How will The Stack DAO work? 500 of our Members are in various web3 related clubs in our community and we want to take it slow to ensure everyone is onboarded safely. The Stack DAO will first be open to existing Premium Members. We know this is very Web 2.0 but we wanna test how this transition goes.
1 June - Premium Members can apply to be DAO Contributor here.
2 July - Successful applicants will be airdropped our Citizen NFT and invited to a Private Club on The Stack World App
3 August - Teams form to meet weekly over the summer and submit proposals for discussion topics for the round tables.
4 September 1st 2022 - NFT Holders vote on all the proposals. The 16 Round Table topics are finalised.
5 September - Each Round Table is given a budget from the treasury to pay for speakers, photography, writers and videographers.
6 October 6th 2022 - Conference Day! Houses manage their Rooms, attendees and topics. Conversations last 1-3 Hours.
7 November 1st 2022 Round Tables submit materials - videos, photography, whitepapers, essays and articles for publication.
8 December 2022 - Publication launch.

The Stack speaks exclusively with Greek designer Mary Katrantzou on her new Lipsy London collection, welcoming indecision, and unlocking a new sense of bravery since becoming a mother.
In 2012, Dr Torfeh was appointed as the UN Director of the Strategic Communication and Spokespersons Unit in Afghanistan. Here she shares her expertise with The Stack on the power shifts she thinks will occur there following the West’s recent withdrawal.
