How to meet
We are on a mission to change the way American women succeed. That requires a change of habit, a change of heart, and in some cases a change in perception. It's imperative to encourage a collaborative and supportive mindset within the community we're creating because we believe you and women like you are the most valuable asset and most powerful ally. With that in mind, to be eligible for the Inspired Women Community Grant you are required to implement support for other women in business in your usual business activities. While that may sound like a big ask, here are a few simple ways to get it done.
Become a Mentor
Plan, volunteer, or provide sponsorship for an event that benefits women entrepreneurs
Offer women entrepreneurs discounts on the products or services you provide.
Offer free or discounted masterclasses, workshops, courses, webinars, and other resources
Use your voice and share your knowledge by being a speaker or panelist at a charitable event for women
Make a donation to an organization that benefits women in business.
& the list continues! While most of the examples above cost you nothing, they mean everything to the women who need what you have to share. If we all give a little...we can change alot.
