Community Partnership Program

 

 'There are lots of ways to make money, but not so many ways to make a difference' ©

Women's Network Australia is not just an organisation, it's a community. Since our inception, Women's Network Australia has taken a leadership role in inspiring and encouraging our Members to use their lives to make a difference.

Our Members are successful businesswomen with competing demands on their time, nevertheless, charitable and community support remains high on their agenda. Women's Network Australia's Community Partnership Program provides all WNA Members with a structured and time efficient forum through which they can make a contribution.

Commencing on the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has now grown to 71 locations across Australia. The Orange Sky Laundry team wash over 6.9 tonnes of laundry every week. But, most importantly, are the 1,300 hours of positive and genuine conversations held with their clients every week.
