Where do I start? 2015-16 has been a massive year for Global Sisters, and thanks to our truly incredible community of supporters; ambassadors, our team and board, business coaches, community partners, and most importantly Sisters, we are fully operational. We have supported nearly 50 women across Australia and are expanding our services in NSW, the ACT and Victoria.

At Global Sisters, we are enabling women to become financially independent and stand tall. We do not do this alone. Global Sisters fills gaps where business resources are unavailable and connects women to what they need to grow a small business, when they need it. 
 

A woman who is isolated, disconnected, lacking confidence, networks and resources will struggle to get a successful business going. But, when she is part of a strong #SisterTribe that believes in her potential and connects her with peers as well as the right business know-how, technology, sales channels, finance and ongoing support, she will go far. 
 

We are incredibly grateful for all of you who have whole-heartedly joined our #SisterTribe, whether that be financially, as a community partner or by giving your time, expertise and resources.

 

Our Sister’s stories are unique and powerful, and we are excited to be sharing some of them here in our very first e-newsletter, along with our other news.

 

Thank you for all your support.
