Women and girls comprise half of the planet’s population; our empowerment is essential in expanding economic growth and promoting social development in a sustainable way.
WHO ARE WE?
The Sister Sister Network is a registered social-enterprise contributing to gender equality through the provision of empowering and inspiring events curated for women.
Our events offer personal and leadership development to women from all walks of life. From business owners, career professionals, future leaders to women currently charting their next steps, our events offer advice, peer support, coaching and guidance on key themes.
Most women can only access these crucial skills at the discretion of their employers or from personal sponsorship, through our work we are expanding access and creating a platform for women to take the lead and gain the confidence for impact.
In partnership with expert coaches, storytellers, and experienced leaders, our events equip women with confidence, community, advice, and key leadership skills as well as tools needed to influence others. We know that gender equality is not just 'for women to drive' but that true change can only happen when we all work together.
All of our events are designed to bring women and men together to share advice and insights that tackle current challenges women are facing in key areas.
We also work with businesses, policy-makers, and organisations who have gender-balance and leadership at the heart of their values to identify ways of gender equality and female leadership.
HOW WE STARTED
In 2016, Aduke Onafowokan founded The Sister Sister Network to make leadership and personal development more accessible to women from all walks of life.
Her simple vision was to see women from all cultures and backgrounds coming together to share ideas and empower each other.
4 years and over 10,000 international members later, we are proud of The Sister Sister Legacy and continue to grow our reach and impact.
"..self-acceptance paves the way to leadership.
At some point you have to look at yourself and say, ok I am enough, and then you work on the grey areas and really step up to lead."
