We are two Indigenous businesswomen who have a passion for our culture and family; achieving our goals; and connecting with like-minded people.
As a new age of businesswomen, we face a unique set of complex challenges and responsibilities.
How do we balance our career goals with our commitment to family and culture?
How do we better express to people what we have to offer?
How do we help the next generation realise their potential?
We found ourselves asking these questions, and knew that there had to be more women out there who were feeling the same way.
Our solution: Indigenous Women in Business.
A little about us...
