Women’s Circle: Taking the next step towards empowerment

The Women’s Circle sessions aimed to provide a platform for women to celebrate the power of sisterhood and to empower women through fundraising for YGAP’s.

Publish date:

On June 26, we concluded the final chapter of our Women’s Circle series. After its official launch on International Women’s day, our Social Innovators partnered with Salesforce to facilitate and deliver a six-part series of Women’s Circle events across Melbourne (April 17, May 15, June 12) and Sydney (April 30, May 28, June 26).

The Women’s Circle sessions aimed to provide a platform for women to celebrate the power of sisterhood and to empower women through fundraising for YGAP’s, YHer initiative. YHer provides funding for social entrepreneurial projects led by emerging female leaders. To date, $3 300 has been raised for this initiative!  

Women’s Circle: Taking the next step towards empowerment 

The Women’s Circle series of discussions revolved around the protective ‘masks’ that are prevalent at work, the dynamics of masculinity and femininity at play in our mindset, expressions and actions, and insights from the recurring cycles in nature that we can apply to the way we work and live 

“An eye-opening experience to have soul-warming conversations about topics that are not usually discussed but are very relevant to working women across various industries.”  –  Michelle Ou, Consultant 

Facilitated by a range of leaders:  

  • Jane Hardwicke Collings (International Educator, Founder of The School of Shamanic Womancraft) 
  • Victoria Plaskin (Psychotherapist and Executive Coach, Co-Founder of The Trusted Negotiator) 
  • Katherine Cunningham (Menstrual Educator, Founder of Living Gently)

The other women in the circle were incredibly supportive and welcoming, which made me feel comfortable opening up. Jane is a great leader and by the end of the session, I felt more connected to my true self and step into my true power in the workplace. Highly recommended.”  Anonymous  

Attended by 

  • Susan Beeston – Vice President of Capgemini Invent, Australia and New Zealand 
  • Sau-Yeng Dixon –Salesforce Director, Business Architect and Co-ordinator of the event
