Global Sisters exists to “Back Her Brilliance” and make business possible for all Australian women. We support women who are unemployed or under-employed to become financially independent through business.

We have worked with Aboriginal women across Australia since inception in 2016, and our impact to date is documented in the paper, First Nation Sisters on our Social Impact platform: https://impact.globalsisters.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/GS201104-First-Nation-Sisters-Paper.pdf
In this project, Global Sisters will build on that previous work, to develop an Aboriginal led strategy and implement a model designed with and specifically for Aboriginal Sisters. We will hire a national role, an Aboriginal “RCM” (our key Sister facing role) who will develop the strategy and adapt our model to meet the needs of Aboriginal Sisters in different contexts around Australia.
