Everyone has slowly liberated themselves from the stereotypical thinking that females have a lesser status in society. It’s still inevitable that men are still thought to have the upper hand, but it's changing deliberately. Progress is still progress, and we’ll continue to advocate to break that bias. Women empowerment has continually been a hot topic for years now and you won’t realize how great the collective impact of women has until you join in with them and collaborate.
Much to stereotype, some think that there should be fierce competition between women due to the male dominance that overrides society. It has never been like that. Women have become safe zones and have been looking out for each other. I know, we know, how the world can put weight on its expectations of us in our fields.
Before I formed my very own network of women, there were highs and lows in my life. And when I found the stability I’ve been looking for, I realized how I enjoyed connecting with people and continued to network. My vision for this circle is to continue to educate, support, and empower women.
Know the power of having an all-women squad. Here’s what you’ll gain not only in business but in life as well.
We’re not all serious talk because we also know how to have fun. In Women Empowering Women Now, I make sure that everyone’s engaging. From free monthly networking groups, conferences, and retreats, we’ve got online and in-person events that could get in touch with our tribe of women. We cater to the woman who has an entrepreneurial spirit who is looking for business guidance, masterclasses, prompts, challenges, masterminds, forms, and networking. We also include a personal development aspect where we engage in the social community by providing art, wellness, and spirituality classes.
Although in this time of pandemic we’re constrained to Zoom gatherings or limited in-person events, we’ll make something happen somehow. Spend some downtime with your circle. You need a well-deserved break once in a while.
Gain support & advice without judgment
Don’t worry if you feel like a newbie in your space, everyone starts somewhere. How nice would it be to have someone give a bit of advice when you need it. Well, you’re missing out on something. When you network through an all-female group, they get you. They can relate to your situation and can give you advice and the support you need without any judgment.
Think of it as a team or support group. One of your safe spaces. Be free to talk with them concerning matters, may it be personal or work-related. All of these women come from all walks of life, so rest assured they’ll hear you out.
They’ll recognize and acknowledge your importance
In the pursuit of finding your relevance in the space, you’re in, you could just find solace within a network of women. One of the purposes a networking group is formed is to celebrate and empower its members. It helps build your confidence and helps you find inspiration. Your fellow women will be there to celebrate you. Present yourself as authentically as you can and your sisters in biz appreciating you.
Don’t think that joining these groups only for business-related stuff, it can also benefit your personal life. You are connecting with other businesswomen, true, but sooner than you think you’re creating a bond that’s deeper than just business. Building relationships with them can give you more reasons to join. The genuine bond women have is something that can’t be replaced. Form your women in biz squad.
Grow your network
We can’t leave out the most obvious benefit of all when joining a women’s networking tribe - growing your network with women entrepreneurs. This ties back to your professional background. Connect with women who are in the same field as you. Create connections with other members from different walks of life. Or If you’re looking for a mentor, you might just find one in your group.
Business networking isn’t something new, but female networking has taken the spotlight. They don’t only do business but they do much more. Women Empowering Women Now has grown a community where giving back, kindness, and empowerment is our principal foundation for developing relationships. We’ll help you create action and momentum to living your best life now.
