#BackHerBrilliance: Sister Pitch 2021

Global Sisters has supported more than 5000 Australian women on their business journeys. Now we are challenging 30 of Australia’s leading CEOs, founders and senior executives to help us on our 5 year journey to see 17,000 new female-led micro businesses!

 

Global Sisters exists to make business possible for women from all walks of life, enabling them to be financially resilient and stand tall. We provide a genuine alternative for women who are unable to participate in mainstream employment or access decent, sustainable work.

Women have disproportionately been impacted by the economic effects of COVID, however, women’s micro business is an unsung hero and powerhouse of our economy, propping up thousands of Australian families and communities. Investing in women’s micro business represents a unique and powerful opportunity to create new businesses, new jobs and contribute to economic recovery. To date our wonderful corporate partners have stood up to #BackHerBrilliance by providing over $2.6 million in pro bono coaching and business support transferred directly to emerging women-led micro businesses.

To create new jobs & improve women’s economic security, a group of 30 leading corporate CEOs, founder’s and senior executives are participating in 2021 Sister Pitch on November 9th 2021, from 10 am – 11:30am. At the event, Mandy Richards, CEO & Founder of Global Sisters will share the vision and what has been achieved so far, Sisters will pitch their businesses & access support from the CEOs in curated group breakout rooms, and we will celebrate the creation of more jobs for Australian women via micro business.

To support the 30 Sisters in Sister Pitch 2021, and the 1000 new Sisters will be supporting in 2022, click here to make a contribution. This will give you access to the livestream of Sister Pitch on November 9th at 10am. Join the celebration, be inspired and connect Sisters with the networks, opportunities and support they need to take their business to the next level.
