Purposeful Women is a powerful hands-on half-day workshop geared toward helping women develop a more purposeful and productive life.
NOTE: Due to COVID-19 the date of this workshop is TBC.
Are you inspired by women who have been able to forge their careers, are working to create a level playing field and seem to really be living their purpose, but wondering how you can make the same steps to have a more impactful life yourself? This workshop is geared to do just that.
Our work in the developing world is focused around women - because we know that empowering women is the key to ending hunger and poverty. The rural women we partner with across Africa, India, Bangladesh and Latin America are often the most maligned women in the world - with little access to education, financial freedom and a complete lack of equality.
We provide them with the opportunity to define a vision for their future and through enabling programmes we support them to achieve that vision. They go on to become powerful voices in their communities, business owners and entrepreneurs.
If this is what can happen for women that come from generations of oppression, imagine what we can achieve here in Aotearoa!
What you'll get out of Purposeful Women.
This workshop will:
- Provide you with the tools to define a vision for your life.
- Inspire you to achieve that vision.
- Enable you to shift your mindset to breakthrough the limitations that are holding you back from living a life of purpose and achievement.

We are delighted to have the inspiring Claire Martin on the couch with us for this workshop!
Claire is a self-confessed “do-gooder” with an addiction to challenge, excitement, and doing things differently, particularly in business, but also in everyday life.
In 2019 she travelled to Malawi, Africa on The Hunger Project NZ's immersion leadership programme along with several other inspiring souls. The women and families she met there changed her outlook on the world and challenged her to take some risks with a fledgling business and in her personal life. “Community led development” and empowering women to achieve their potential have become her catch cry over the past year.
Claire runs My Mortgage, a mortgage company based mainly in the Waikato, along with Velma & Beverley, a clothing label trumpeting the properties of New Zealand wool. She has worked on many other projects including building several homes, real estate development and once cycled the length of the North Island to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation.
She values giving others the opportunity to be the best version of themselves and is constantly striving to take meaningful action towards making the world a more sparkly place!
Our Purposeful Women workshop is being held at the Parnell Community Centre - 545 Parnell Road, Parnell.
