What we're about
She Mentors (https://shementors.com.au/) is a community of amazing women in business. Whether you're a business professional or just starting out in your career, this group is for women who want to help each other succeed. It's a mentorship group, somewhere we can come to inspire, connect and support each other. We will brainstorm ideas, set business goals and champion the next generation of female CEOs. All while drinking a glass of wine (or two)!
I'd like us to celebrate the successes – and failures – of our businesses. To discuss the challenges women face in the workplace. To offer advice, support and constructive criticism. It will be a small, collaborative working environment that welcomes fresh faces, innovative ideas and women of all ages and backgrounds.
There is tremendous power in women supporting other women
I was incredibly inspired when I read about the 'amplification strategy', coined by the women of the White House in 2016. When President Obama took office, two-thirds of his top aides were men. Women complained of having to elbow their way into important meetings – and when they got in, their voices were sometimes ignored. So they adopted a meeting strategy called 'amplification': when a woman made a key point, other women would repeat it, crediting the woman who came up with it, and forcing others to acknowledge that women had just as much to contribute.
So, if you feel as inspired as I did, please come along to our next MeetUp. We also have a private Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/shementors) and a buzzing community on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/shementors/) so don't forget to come say hi.
Looking forward to meeting you,
