The (Very) Round Table: The best business platforms for female entrepreneurs


In The News
WNA round table
As the maxim goes, it isn’t what you know, but who you know. The very round table is giving entrepreneurial women both.

Women in business have a deep and collective understanding of the challenges and frustrations that are experienced when embarking on, establishing, or scaling a business, especially if they operate in a traditionally male-dominated space.

While it’s commonly agreed that women also bear the brunt of the emotional labour today’s modern lives demand of us, any woman in business is likely also to be constantly challenged to find the time and energy not only for herself, but also friends and partners, families, often including children and more often, aging parents too.

In Australia, we are lucky to be a population of ambitious, inspiring, and creative women, for the most part keen to open up and share solutions and achievements, seek advice, and network to support each other to overcome problems.

We are very excited to announce that Women’s Network Australia has been featured in The Big Smoke’s ‘Very’ Round Table – a compilation of the best networking platforms for women in business and female entrepreneurs.

The Big Smoke call this The (Very) Round Table; societies, meetups and online groups whose sole purpose is to fuel excellence in female entrepreneurs and women in business. Platforms such as these provide invaluable opportunities to meet, interrelate, discuss business, personal and mental health issues, support one another, and in many instances, create everlasting relationships.

The Big Smoke work with a number of incredible female founders and business leaders (both in Australia and the US) who have lots of unique and valuable insights into what it takes to succeed.  From the start-up journey itself, leaning into failure and disappointment, and what makes female entrepreneurs so remarkable, to the battle to integrate work and the emotional labour we still carry the bulk of for our families and networks, our leaders are vocal advocates for empowering women in business.

Women’s Network Australia are incredibly proud to be part of this project.
