Our Events


Curated community-led events to help us grow, learn, and spark connection. From fireside chats with founders to workshops and panel discussions, these more structured sessions aim to deepen your knowledge and enrich your life and business.


Over coffee or cocktails, we gather monthly at different, locations around the city. These more informal sessions are an opportunity to connect, catch up, ask for help, offload, and be inspired by the incredible group of women in our community.


In keeping with our mission to support our members to stay happy and healthy, we host regular wellness-centred events, where members of our community lead, or coordinate movement, fitness, and creative themed events across the city.

Surround yourself with people who lift you up.

We’re a wonderfully diverse bunch, from social enterprises, ​product-based businesses such as candles, textiles, womenswear, ​and F&B. As well as service-based businesses such as social ​media experts, photographers, digital marketers, brand strategy ​and design, business coaches, lawyers, wellness, fitness and more.

What we have in common, is our genuine intention to support one ​another, cheer each other on, and be a part of something bigger ​than ourselves, and that my friend, is pretty powerful.
