Do you have a dream? Let us help you action it.
With International Women’s Day fast approaching, many businesses will be jumping on the band wagon to show their support to women all over the world. But what does ‘women’s empowerment’ really mean and how can we truly empower women to live their best lives? We believe that one of the most effective ways to support women, is to equip them to empower themselves economically.
We are working on a project called Accelerating Women’s Enterprise (AWE) Making a Difference, which aims to help more women overcome the barriers that can stand in their way when setting up a business, enterprise or even community project. If you have a dream that you would like to turn into reality, we would love to hear from you.
We are offering FREE tailored enterprise support, training and guidance through small group start-up workshops and mentoring sessions throughout West Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Gain the knowledge, entrepreneurial skills and confidence necessary to establish a successful enterprise that could help you make a positive impact in your community!
We have limited spaces available, so please contact email@example.com | 01803 847081 to request an application form. Alternatively, you can learn more about the AWE project here: www.dartington.org/awe
Do something amazing… Become a mentor!
We are also looking for enthusiastic and supportive mentors in the West Somerset area, who are willing to share their professional experience with one or two women on the AWE Making a Difference start-up programme. One day of fully funded (FREE) mentoring training is provided, with the expectation that you will be able to dedicate just one hour each month to support an appropriately matched aspiring woman entrepreneur on our start-up programme. For more information, please get in touch by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
How could being a mentor benefit you?
Being a mentor on the AWE programme will look great on your LinkedIn profile, whilst also providing a valuable opportunity to increase your professional network. Research also shows that volunteering and giving back in meaningful ways can increase feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Mentors can be men or women.
