Women working together to run their own business
The Sisters Project, led by Dr Dhara Shah of the Department of Business Strategy and Innovation, Griffith Business School aims to empower ‘sisters’ by building their self-efficacy, fostering their earnings, bringing them together in groups to form support networks or partnerships, and providing them with skill development, training, mentoring and coaching support, and grants to start a small business.
The project is supported by the Australian Government and Queensland Government.
The final objective of the project is to develop self-sufficient women who are connected into their community networks, with increased skills and opportunities for employment and, in turn, develop community capacity.
Success of this project is not about building successful and sustainable businesses, it is about building self-confidence and skills, to enable broader employment and creating a pathway to financial independence.
