A migrant woman with a nano or micro business contributes to the economic, social and cultural development of Australian society if she has confidence, support networks, time and capacity, access to high-quality education and commercial opportunities. An empowered migrant woman is an agent of change. Her potential is unlimited, and her impact unstoppable.
In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 5: Achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls. Our mission is to nurture the leadership and entrepreneurship of migrant women by creating an ecosystem of organisations and women business owners and leaders who learn and grow by supporting each other.
We have our sights on over 1,000 migrant women entrepreneurs to become community leaders and profitable business owners by 2025.
