About | Bandofsisters | Australia

OUR REASON WHY

What we know!

What issues we address

  1. Career off ramping by ex- corporate, professional women, frequently after having children.

  2. As unpaid carers, these women are unaccounted for in national statistics.

  3. Untapped community female talent facing barriers to paid contribution.

  4. External barriers to workforce return means that women compromise on role equivalency and pay to balance family and career needs.

  5. Women are impacted by low self-confidence and thereby not taking new opportunities.

What we care about

  • Supporting other women

  • Finding solutions

  • Flexibility and work balance

  • Creating a sustainable planetary environment

  • Equality

  • Creating change in people’s lives

  • The role of kindness

  • A life where women don't have to choose between family and career. 

  • Health, wellbeing and the equality of these across the globe

  • Helping women live fulfilled and meaningful lives

  • Women being fully recognised and heard

  • For women to realise their worth

  • Women getting in touch with their passions, interests and the wider world 

  • Learning to reclaim their aspirations.
