Unleashed Women was created for all those women we’ve met who are looking for connection, purpose, meaning, leadership and laughter. Women like you.
Our purpose is to bring women together. To unleash their potential to make a difference in the world. To bring dancing, colour and celebration to the women of Australia. For us to let go of the things that hold us back and to become part of something bigger than us. To find joy, fun, connection and energy by supporting and empowering each other, and working together towards something remarkable – ending hunger by 2030.

Why women are the key to ending hunger
At The Hunger Project, we’ve always known that the end of hunger is possible. Now, the world is aligned that we can end world hunger by 2030. In September 2015, world leaders, the UN and governments agreed on 17 Global Goals for sustainable development to tackle the biggest issues that our world is facing, including ending hunger and poverty, climate change and gender inequality. There is collective agreement about the importance of investing in women and girls and the disproportionate challenges that they face globally, to put women first and bring about equality. The Hunger Project believes that empowering women to be key change agents is the most critical element to achieving the end of hunger and poverty.
While many women around the world are hungry in the literal sense, we’ve recognised that many women in Australia are hungry too. Not for food, but for something else; whether that be purpose, meaning, connection, love, openness, authenticity or leadership. Unleashed Women aims to end this hunger that holds us back from being empowered, and to foster a unique and inspirational experience for all women involved.

A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
They may not listen to me today but if I keep trying they may listen to me tomorrow
