BiG Tips: You’ll find many local, national and international private and government groups to support women in leadership, business and other skills. Here are some:
Business Chicks They say “We believe that every woman is capable of achieving brilliant things – but you can’t do it alone. And that’s why Business Chicks exists. We’re here to support each other, learn from each other and to give back. Whether you’re running your own show, surrounded by others in an office, or just missing that sense of connection and support, the Business Chicks community has your back.”
European Women in Business (EWIB) They say: “EWIB initiated by Janine Lum began as a collaborative effort between the European Chambers in Melbourne 2010 with an explicate women’s focus on business and personal development… (EWIB) is a unique networking group which brings together business women interested in European culture and lifestyle to showcase premium fashion, lifestyle brands, beauty and business in exclusive and elegant venues. The network focuses on enriching, educating and inspiring women by presenting high quality guest speakers as well as assisting those involved to forge new, mutually beneficial business relationships.“
HerBusiness Suzi Daphnis (founder) says “I’ve been a big believer in the power of business to create freedom and to be a way to express our passion and make a difference and change the world. And for the past 20 years, that’s what we’ve been committed to helping women in business do. Today, HerBusiness is a thriving community of more than 30,000 women (and men) from around the world who are stepping up and taking action by starting and growing the businesses and lives they love. Our members know that having a support network keeps them strong – even when they’re feeling vulnerable or stuck. They realise that in order to have a breakthrough in their business, they need to have a breakthrough in their knowledge – so they love learning. They are lifelong learners who know they can draw on the hundreds of hours of tuition in their online library whenever they want or attend the many live webinars, training courses and in-person events we regularly host… they can learn from many of the world’s greatest thought-leaders, like Seth Godin, Tara Mohr and Guy Kawasaki and find the mentors they need.
One of Many They say “is a supportive community and educational hub for intelligent and successful professional women who feel called to do more and give more.”
