We’re so excited to announce that on the 8th of March, we will be hosting the first edition of our event series to celebrate International Women’s Day! Do Good, Feel Great with Leiho in collaboration with Birdsong, Give Your Best and Pivot; an evening of female connection, empowerment and motivation.
We will be bringing together a collection of inspirational female leaders of socially or environmentally impactful businesses to celebrate impact-driven female founders. The evening will be filled with an open panel discussion, interactive activities and delicious complimentary treats, food and drinks (Sassy Cidre & more).
Whether you are an aspiring female founder or looking to be inspired, soak up the energy and learn. It's a chance for incredible women doing incredible things to meet, connect and collaborate!
Joey Li | Leiho | Host & Co-Founder
A social enterprise on a mission to improve the quality of life for people experiencing homelessness through smiley bamboo socks, eco-conscious gifts & everyday products. Every purchase helps fund impact projects and donations of essentials to those without a home.
Sol Escobar | Give Your Best | Founder
A charity with a revolutionary platform, where people and brands can donate clothes online so that women and children who are refugees or asylum seekers can shop for free, empowering them through access to choice.
Susanna Wen | Bird Song | CEO & Designer
A sustainable, social enterprise fashion brand for people who want to dress with joy, support makers and protect the planet. A leading brand in the market that skillfully create not-so-everyday staple and made-for-you pieces in the most ethical, socially impactful way possible.
Sabella Ibanez | Pivot | Head of Operations
A social enterprise on a mission to empower people who are experiencing homelessness to pivot their lives through the making and enterprise. Pivot brings part-time, flexible and meaningful employment for those who find it hard to access. Every piece of jewellery bought takes the makers one step closer to their goal of leaving the hostel.
