TOPIC // This is not a Drill

Purpose: To empower and bring confidence to women

Objective: In light of what's happened in Melbourne recently and the number of assaults and threatening behaviour towards women, League of Extraordinary Women are partnering with some of Australia's leading self-defence organisations to bring free and accessible self-defence workshops to women across Australia.

These workshops aim to bring awareness and practical teachings to those that attend about safety, prevention and self-reliance

If you’re a female entrepreneur or thinking of owning your own business, this Meet Up is the perfect setting to meet other women in the same boat. This is not a networking group – we’re here to have real conversations and make real connections.

What do we mean by real? Well you know when you walk into a room and feel welcome even when you don’t know anyone? Or when you share experiences with someone and they say “me too!”? How about when you share tough times with someone and they don’t try to give you the advice to fix it but rather - they just get you. This is what happens at League of Extraordinary Women Meet Ups.
