In 2018, Switch Tasmania partnered with Swinburne University to deliver the Enterprising Rural Women's Sessions. A need for a businesswomen's group in our region was identified through these sessions. The Ignite North West Women's Group was founded and has since formed a committee with a constitution and a gained Incorporated Association and Not-For-Profit status.
Our mission is to empower women to grow entrepreneurial businesses on the northwest coast of Tasmania through networking, support and collaboration. We aim to be a peak industry body that is well known and respected in our community, designed to increase business confidence in women in our region.
· We value the knowledge of others, celebrating their success and recognising their hard work.
· We value friendships and collaboration in a safe, inclusive environment.
· We value strong work ethic, integrity and resilience.
