Supporting entrepreneurs

03 Sep 2015

Local social enterprise SisterWorks is holding a fundraising event in Docklands this month.

The One Night. One Dream event at NAB’s 700 Bourke St headquarters will see asylum seeker, refugee and migrant women share their entrepreneurial stories. Australian entrepreneur Carolyn Cresswell will also be a guest speaker at the event.

The event, on Tuesday, September 15, will also feature a Q&A session, an exhibition of photos, stories and products and plenty of African music to get you in the mood.

Based in Docklands, SisterWorks is a grassroots social enterprise, which aims to enable asylum seeker, refugee and migrant women to achieve financial independence by tapping into their business and entrepreneurial abilities.

The organisation aims to help them develop their skills by:

  • Providing training, coaching and support to develop business and language skills;
  • Providing the opportunity for social connections and networking;
  • Identifying and co-ordinating work opportunities; and
  • Assisting with resources and marketing.

SisterWorks’ One Night. One Dream fundraiser is on Tuesday, September 15 from 5.30pm until 7.30pm at The Arena at NAB’s 700 Bourke St headquarters. Entry is $75
