Behind the Scenes

Here at The Sister Sister Global Network, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2016, we’ve been curating impactful leadership forums, seminars and summits bringing together women and men to discuss and share ideas on issues that matter most to women leaders.

We started in UK, running regional leadership for women forums in London,Reading, Birmingham, Nottingham and Oxford throughout the year. Since then, we have grown into a more global enterprise, with all of our online forums open to women across the globe who are able to join.

We also host the Arise Women's Summit annually in Reading Berkshire, bringing inspiring women together for a day of networking, learning and community.

We are still on our journey, we are constantly listening and reflecting on what matters most to women leaders today; creating events that reflect and respond to these moments that are shaping the future.


"Am I good enough? Yes, I am"

Support that counts

Our Why:

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.

Our Values:

Listening - How can we make a difference?

Collaboration - Who can we make a difference with?

Giving Back - Who can we make a difference for?



Making A Difference


Arise is our annunal women's conference, hosted each year in Reading, Berkshire.

Featuring inspiring keynote talks, panels, and breakout sessions, Arise brings together the voices of a diverse range of luminaries who have made a difference in their businesses and communities to discuss issues pertinent to women. 



Systemic challenges often interrupt the leadership learning process for women, holding them back and creating a negative chain reaction across the board.

Our forums offer skill, advice, and encouragement to help women and engaged allies mitigate some of these issues and attain success in their leadership journeys.


At The Sister Sister Global Network, we are dedicated to offering support to women at all stages of their leadership journey. 

Through the support of our partners and sponsors, we are able to offer practical and tangible interventions to our members.

In 2020, we awarded a sponsored place to one of our members to attend The University of Oxford Women's Leadership Programme and complementary tickets to The European Business Summit of the Year - Brand Minds to two of our members.

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you like it here and join our community. I started the Sister Sister Global Network with a handful of women in 2016 to expand access to leadership development for women. Little did we know then that through the power of people and passion, we could achieve our aims and aspiration.

Like many women out there, I am a dual-career wife and mum, In addition to Sister Sister Network, I am a leadership and diversity coach/speaker, entrepreneur, and lead associate at Inclusivitii a boutique Diversity Equality and Inclusion Consultancy based in Oxford, England.

I also live in Oxford with my family, love singing, gardening, and walks with my kids listening to all things dork diaries, sonic adventures, school dramas, and the endless pleas to adopt a puppy.
