Following on from the tremendous success of the Women’s Awards (previously, the East Midlands Women’s Awards – EMWA) Founder, Sandra Pollock has launch something else to support the women of our region.
“It was always my intention to create a community as part of the Women’s Awards. The Covid-19 Pandemic has meant that we like every other business has had to change how we’ve done things. So instead of starting with in-person events, we took our community to an online approach.
Having only launched in June this year, I’m pleased and excited about the amount of benefit and progress our members have already received.
The Community has been set up as a safe place for our members to grow, explore their options, possibilities, and opportunities. It’s a community created for ambitious women, by ambitious women.
So, what’s on offer?
We have monthly webinars where our high achieving guest speakers share from their experiences, knowledge, and skill, offering our members the chance to learn, ask questions and grow.
We also have our Mastermind groups, which are closed, private meetings where our members can raise real issues of concern in their business or career paths, in a safe and strictly confidential environment. They receive experienced, practical, information, support, and advice to move forward. The Mastermind groups are a great place to help with focus and accountability. Two areas that are shown to help us really power ahead of our peers.
Here’s what members are already saying…
“Being a part of the community is uplifting, inspiring, and offers opportunities, including the chance to give back.” B. Sankey.
These are successful, experienced business women, who want nothing more than to associate with other successful, likeminded women, who are prepared to help each other succeed. There’s no competitiveness.
“I was looking for a community where women could support each other into excellence, and I have found it!” K. Cureton
The Women’s Awards Community is a subscription membership which is open to all women, at all levels of their business and career development journey. Women are amazing at supporting others and have a great amount to give and share. My job, as I see it is to create the environment where that happens, and it’s doing very well so far. I also have the help of our wonderful Founding Members, who joined us early on with a remit to assist me in building this great vision.
So, the Women’s Awards Membership is the start of our development programme bringing you together with women, who like you, have dreams, ambitions, and goals they want to achieve and are looking for a safe, encouraging, and supportive environment. We welcome applications from women from all sectors, cultures, races, religion, etc. The only prerequisite is that you are ready to commit to your own development and growth and that of your fellow members.
In addition to the benefits I’ve already mentioned, you’ll have access to our Development Programme ‘Shine’, which is due to come online soon. Membership offers a range of training, workshops, workbooks, and materials, coaching, mentoring. Not forgetting our private Facebook group where members are free to share and support each other.
If this sounds like something, you’d like to be a part of, I encourage you to hurry. The Women’s Membership opportunity will only be open a couple times each year. I’m pleased to be able to offer Savvy Women readers a special discount of 10% on their annual subscription. To benefit this must be taken up before the end of September 2020. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org using Quote SVY2020 to get the discount.
We have so much more planned for the coming months and I look forward to sharing more with you in due course. The Women’s Awards is a movement of change. I hope you’ll join us.
Wishing you much success.
