Global Sisters #BackHerBrilliance –  Making Business Possible 

Global Sisters exists to make business possible for women, enabling them to be financially resilient and stand tall by providing a genuine alternative for women who are unable to participate in mainstream employment. We make self-employment a viable option for women.

We are a national Not for Profit, and receive funding through corporate, philanthropic and government partners to be able to deliver our programs to women in Australia which means we are able to provide all our support completely free to our women.

We have had extensive and ongoing coverage across all major news outlets across Australia. If you are interested in finding out more, connecting with our Founder, Mandy Richards, or want to help spread the Global Sisters vision please contact us by email on hello@globalsisters.org.

You can follow our impact via our Impact Platform  and see many of our Sister’s businesses on our Marketplace.
