SheSaw...positive social impact

Economic Empowerment

We partner with businesses  in Australia and overseas to grow women's economic empowerment - increasing women's earning potential, access to fair work and decision-making ability.  As the United Nations puts it...

"Women’s economic empowerment is about unlocking the potential of women to earn more, gain better jobs and achieve financial independence. It’s about economic equality: such as closing the gender pay gap, increasing job opportunities, or access to loans. It’s also about breaking down barriers that hold women back: from discriminatory laws to an unfair share of unpaid home and family care. It’s a game-changer for development: because when more women get the chance to work, it makes their families, communities & countries wealthier."

When women are empowered, they invest in their communities and inspires future generations.  It helps achieve gender equality, reduces poverty and supports sustainable economic growth - all of which is so important in our post-Covid world.

Responsibility

SheSaw believes that travel , done responsibly, even virtually, has the potential to drive positive change in the world.

The places and stories we share via our digi-guides are intentionally diverse.  We ask that you read them with an open mind and accepting heart.

We reinvest a percentage of our profits into charities and social enterprises that are helping women be safe and financially independent. 

 

This isn't a nice to have for us, its one of the main reasons we exist.

SheSaw believes that companies have a responsibility to do good where ever and whenever they can, by balancing profit and purpose. 

 

That's why over the next 12 months we will be working towards B-Corp Certification (www.bcorporation.com.au). 

 

Follow our certification journey on our social media.

Visibility

Gandhi said: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” But to be it, you have to see it.  This is why story-telling is so important.

 

We share the women's history that is woven across the world.  We put a spotlight on the women - from engineers to activists, who are shaping their communities and impacting the world today.

By increasing the visibility of women's achievements, we inspire other women to follow in their footsteps, making a change for themselves, their communities and the world.  If you can see it, you can be it.

 

We also affirm women's role in society.  We share women's  life experiences - their struggles as well as their achievements.  This builds empathy and understanding, and lets women know they are seen. It assures them that they have a place and a voice in the world.  It gives them  confidence, and a woman with that can do amazing things.
 

Become part of the story by journeying through our map, following us on Facebook Instagram or Linkedin...then tell a friend about the incredible women you've learned about. 

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we meet, work and explore.  We pay respect to Elders - past, present and emerging, and acknowledge the important role all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have played in the past and will play in the future.
