"Behind every successful woman is a tribe of women who have her back"
Need a personal board of directors? A girl gang to act as your peer mentors? Whether you're a business professional or just starting out in your career, She Mentors is for women who want to help each other succeed. It's a mentorship group, somewhere we can come to inspire, connect and support each other.
In our first event – to be held at the beautiful One Roof co-working space in Southbank – we will discuss workplace stats, reasons women aren't in top leadership positions and proactive ways we can help bridge the gender gap in Australia.
There will be three short presentations from some fabulous women in business; opportunities to set business goals for the month ahead; and plenty of time to network with fellow mentors over a glass of wine.
6pm: Networking & wine!
6.30pm: Presentation: Ali Adey, Organiser of She Mentors
6.45pm: Suzanne Tonks, Director of Oliver & York
7pm: Emma Shearman, Founder of Urban Screens & Melbourne Director of Women in Digital.
We are also looking for new business owners or entrepreneurs to ‘pitch’ their business ideas and ask for real-time feedback from our mentors. Perhaps you've just launched a new website and need advice on branding or SEO? Or you need a couple of volunteers to do some UX testing for you? If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, please email me directly at email@example.com.
* Please note: there will be a small charge of $10 per person to cover room hire, drinks and nibbles. This includes a glass of wine/beer on arrival and of course a beautiful, collaborative space to share ideas right in the heart of Melbourne!
