The Femeconomy Network

Breaking down the Tall Poppy Syndrome

We need more tall poppies in Australia. Emotionally intelligent leaders who our daughters and sons can aspire to be. People who can create the type of companies we want to work for and the type of world we want to live in. Over the last six months members from our community have shared they cannot find a safe online space to become a tall poppy. So, we decided to create one. It’s called The Femeconomy Network. A place where women are supported to succeed. To be ambitious. Where you can share and ask for real-time advice to create paths to leadership.

It’s a community of practice

The intention of The Femeconomy Network is to create a community of practice, sharing advice in real-time with guidance by experts. Communities of practice are formed by people who engage in a process of collective learning in a shared domain of human endeavour. In this case it is becoming a leader and changing the way companies operate.

We want you to own this community, not us.

The intention for this community is to attract a diverse group of women from right across Australia to access real-time professional advice from other women via a closed LinkedIn Group. The closed community group is a place for community conversation, not for promotion. Femeconomy will not be sharing content via this platform, as the content is driven by you. Femeconomy is providing the support structures, mechanisms and foundations.

The community will evolve according to your leadership needs.

As someone who has worked in community development for much of my career, I know communities take time to evolve. That is why we have asked our Ambassadors and Experts to share the journey with us.
