Our Story


We are Women chats with, and shares amazing insights from, its talented Inspirers who are women from all walks of life. Through online video chats We are Women wants to build confidence and individual greatness in all members through hearing Inspirers journeys wherever and whenever is convenient for them.


Through the sharing of Inspirer stories, We are Women members can be assisted in navigating through their own challenges, often unique to women, to recognise and reach their full potential - living their dream - whatever that may be!

The Dream

The We are Women dream is to empower women to have the confidence to step outside their comfort zones, take risks and build the life they want, where dreams become reality and equality is the status quo.


We are Women was proudly born in New Plymouth, Taranaki where its founders originate and now seeks to bring national, and international, Inspirers to women from all walks of life.
