Bringing local women & local stories together

Connection is why we’re here; it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.
– Brene Brown

Community and Business Women’s Network

Community and Business Women’s Network (CBWN) was founded in 2018 with a straightforward purpose – to connect women on the Central Coast.

Though population in the area had significantly expanded in recent years, it was clear that opportunities for women to connect socially and professionally had not. CBWN is built upon the idea that bringing women together creates opportunities for growth, resilience and inspiration at business, community and personal levels. Through a mix of networking events, business showcases and professional development opportunities, CBWN has expanded rapidly to include close to 300 active members. It is open to all women who want to network, make friends, learn, share ideas and support local business.

If you are keen to connect with other Central Coast women in a relaxed and friendly setting, book a seat at our next event or join the CBWN Facebook group today!

Community and Business Women’s Network is a project of Iris Foundation.

Testimonials

“It’s such a warm positive environment. Everyone can come. Whetheryou’rein business, a community organisation, starting your own business or a work from home mum, this is the place.”

Crystal Russom, Southern Cross Austereo 

“The fact that you may begin the meeting as strangers but you end up having a whole range of other friends. If you want to meet and engage with people who have a passion for their community, a passion for their vision, then you should come here. 

Fran Cummings, Kids Day Out 

The best experience I’ve had being part of this group is probably the networking and connections that I’ve been able to build really quick from the get-go. Come along because there’s such a sense of support and connection and community that you just can’t find anywhere else. 

Kristen Budd, General Manager, Southern Cross Austereo 

“It’s grown to a massive supportive community. I’ve met so many different women and I can’t believe the growth that’s happened. We’re all the same, we’re all here for the same reasons and it’s OK if you don’t know anybody. 

Lindsey Clarke, Hotondo Homes Toukley 

I do like to socialize and it does become harder to get out as you get busy in work and family life. I was one of the first Sparkle Events and that really got my business out there. 

Nathalie Ainsworth, Ainsworth Accounting 

It’s inspiring. Every time you hear a story every week you take a little bit from it that makes it be OK to be you.

Kathryn WilkeXcllusive Business Sales
