VISION

An Australia where Indigenous women have the confidence to define and achieve their own success.

MISSION

To provide a platform for Indigenous women to connect, learn, share and lead. To build a community whose members are grounded in culture, passionate about growth, and confident in pursuing their defined success.

VALUES

Culture – we will celebrate our culture in all aspects of Indigenous Women in Business.

Community – we will be dedicated to supporting our communities across Australia through our members.

Success – as our members define their success we will endeavor to provide information, resources and support to equip them in reaching their goals.

WHY

Indigenous women are one of the most marginalized groups in the world with limited access to services and support. Yet it is common that Indigenous women have strong and important leadership roles in Indigenous communities and community organisations. Imagine what they could achieve with the right connections, tools and support network.

Having personally experienced some of these limitations as Indigenous women, Jen and Bec realized there was a need for a National support network for Indigenous women in Australia.

HOW

IWIB was formed in 2014 and exists to equip and empower our women to define their own success.

We do this through:

·      Connecting

·      Learning

·      Sharing

·      Leading

What will IWIB achieve over the next three years with your support?

1.     3000 happy members with increased access to resources for personal and professional development

2.     24 major events across the country creating opportunity for IWIB members

3.     8 regional coordinators to facilitate local programs and activities

4.     4 member projects that have a focus on community development sponsored
