Inspiring Me Now
What we do – Our Kaupapa
Our events are designed to motivate and inspire women/wahine
Women have the opportunity to network and build trusted relationships with other women who share the same desire for growth, leadership, and betterment.
Established in 2018 by Margie Foster and Christine Korako our purpose is to support both professional & non professional women, to broaden their networks, inform, share knowledge, experiences & learnings.
We create, manage and host events and workshops with guest speakers. Speakers enrich our events through their story telling, expertise and experience.
We are happy to say that women tell us that our events are welcoming, informative and inclusive.
