What we do

The Gentlewomen’s Club is a values-based network, a judgement-free zone for women to enjoy each other’s company, rejoice in each other’s success, embrace and learn from challenges.

We are a diverse network that strongly believe in women supporting women. Our aim is to create a safe and happy place, where we encourage expression, empowerment, celebration and connection.

Our members go across different industries and professions and include engineers, policy advisers, lawyers and musicians. With the help and guidance from coaches, psychologists and trainers, we provide the tools to help women succeed in their chosen professional paths and lead balanced personal lives.

Ultimately, we challenge mentalities and help our members create meaningful and supportive relations with other women – we aim at replacing competition with collaboration, envy with admiration and judgement with understanding.

Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts… good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with someone you want to marry, but it’s with the friend that you choose. It’s with the people your surround yourselves with.
