At Awesome Women Network, we believe that every woman deserves the chance to shine. We are a not-for-profit organisation about building and strengthening women to fulfil their unique potential. Our mission is to inspire, encourage and empower women across various sectors, such as government, not for profit, corporate and rural. We achieve this by making connections to amplify all women’s success. We hope to increase the visibility of diverse women across all sectors, ages and stages. We host regular networking events to bring women together.




With over 500 members, our goal is to promote exchange of new perspectives and ideas. With access to the right information and advise, people can find new opportunities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.


Influencing is by no means an easy feat, but through ongoing engagement we believe we can facilitate progress in this space. Our goal is to empower women in three key areas: education, farming/rural and global reach.


At Awesome Women Network, we love celebrating success. Showcasing diverse role models and exceptional achievements is a key part of our activities. We hope to inspire women to feel proud of their successes and achievements.
