Back Her Brilliance: Global Sisters calls on the creative industry to support Australian women to achieve financial independence
Bushfires, a pandemic, and ongoing gender inequality have combined to create a ‘perfect storm’ where Australian women are in need of support in the form of coaching, training and pro-bono services, to make starting and growing a business a real possibility. The good news is that not-for-profit Global Sisters has been working tirelessly to support women to become financially resilient. With over 2000 women participating in their business education programs, they need your support now.
Says Mandy Richards, CEO, Global Sisters: “More than anything else, these women (our Sisters) need help from the creative industries through business coaching and mentorship. This industry’s specialist skills and problem solving capabilities will make a significant difference by helping these women to grow their businesses and create true financial resilience for them, and their families.
“It doesn’t matter if you have two hours or twenty hours that you want to donate, it all makes a huge impact.”
Global Sisters exists to make business possible, for all women. The national organisation works with Australian women that are unemployed, on welfare or in low-paid, unstable work. Global Sisters supports self-employment through the creation of successful businesses. A long-term program of support is offered including business education, coaching, microfinance and sales and marketing support. It is calling on the creative industries to #BackHerBrilliance by donating your time.
Says Richards: “We invite existing businesses and team members to share their professional skills and expertise, flexibly and remotely, and support Sisters through coaching, live training or pro bono consulting projects.”
