Because we know you can...
We believe that every woman has an incredible potential, and we also believe that everybody should be given the opportunity to build their dreams and better themselves and the world around them.
As humans, we inately desire 3 key things..
(1) Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives;
(2) Growth—the urge to get better and better at something that matters;
(3) Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.
And SheBuild is about giving you all that: through business.
Because we know that by empowering YOU, by creating strong female business leaders, and economically empowering women, we will quite literally change the world.
How does SheBuild work?
SheBuild is not about giving hand-outs. We are about giving hand-ups. Empowering you with the skills, knowledge and inspiration you need to change your own life.
We use simple, flexible, and relevant learning resources to teach fundamental business skills to get yourself from idea to functioning business. We help you realise that you already have all the skills they need to make a huge difference. You don’t need an MBA, a complex business plan or even employees. All you need is a purpose; a product or service that springs from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid. And SheBuild can help you unleash this.
We also focus on Financial knowledge and skills. We believe that sometimes, achieving that perfect blend of passion and income doesn’t depend on shelving what you currently do. We will teach you how you can start small with your venture, committing little time or money, and wait to take the real plunge when you’re sure it’s successful.
SheBuild is about giving you access to the best resources, inspiration, mentoring and knowledge so that you can shape a better future for themselves, their communities and the World.
It’s about making you realise that you already have all the skills you need to make a huge difference. And you don’t need to wait until you are older, or you have experience. You can start right now.
Women’s economic empowerment – that is, their capacity to bring about economic change for themselves – is increasingly viewed as the most important contributing factor to achieving equality between women and men, and solving many of the world's social issues. But economically strengthening women also empowers families, communities, and entire nations.
How women in business can change the World:
Women in Leadreship - the World is shaped by those who lead it's change. So by seeing more women leading, we will see more diverse and inclusive decisions. Women make up 51% of the Worlds population...so they should have a say in what happens in it!
Role model effect - in areas with female leaders in local government & buisness, the gender gap in teen education goals disappeared, due to the fact that girls had set higher goals for themselves. Changing perceptions and giving hope can have an impact on reality.
The World Bank found women reinvest an average of 90 percent of their income in their families and communities, compared to a 30 to 40 percent reinvestment rate for men.
By empowering women, there is a paradigm shift within the home or the workplace. The shift sees women as independent, empowered, and contributing members of society. This in turn empowers men to have more choice and freedom in their lives. By empowering men, the barriers that disempower women can be eliminated.
Increase in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) - Closing the gap between male and female employment rates could increase the level of Australian GDP by 11 per cent. That's $26 billion!
For Japan, GDP would be 21% higher, Germany 12%, France 11%, and for the UK the boost would be 11%. That's boosting the economy by $2 trillion just by empowering women!
Better Businesses - Women generally start companies that are human-centered, distinctive, operate differently, and solve different problems in different ways. It will lead to a much better world and society.
