Girls With Hammers is an initiative by Kerryn Vaughan and Nicky Williams focused on presenting events aimed at empowering women. No we're not about power tools or wood working classes although they do sound pretty neat and we just might include this down track! But for now we are about making sure women have what they need to be strong, treated fairly and respected for who they are rather than who society expects them to be. Essentially we support an 'I CAN' attitude and know without a doubt that every woman is incredible - some just need to find their feet. Over many years of campaigning for equality by millions of women, it seems that women as a whole are still a long way from achieving that ultimate goal. This troubles us deeply so we've decide we're not going to sit around and complain about it - we are doing something about it!
Conferences – We recently held our very first Girls With Hammers Conference ONE VOICE in Gippsland (VIC, Australia) aimed at inspiring women to be the best they can be, particularly in terms of believing in themselves and honouring their truth. Our keynote speaker was the incredible Jean Kittson - comedian, TV & radio personality and celebrated author. Our other brilliant speakers gave heaps of simple life changing strategies. SEE MORE HERE
Workshops – If you are looking for workshops that give you the opportunity to dig deeper in a safe space and explore who you truly are, then join us. We love nothing more than supporting women to remove all those nasty restrictive barriers and get exactly what they want out of life by building a platform to independently express what matters most to them. It's easier than you think!
Mentoring – If sitting with someone 1:1 and really hashing things out is your cup of tea, we do that too. Kerryn has been helping people find their voice and unlock their magnificence for many years in her brutally honest kick-ass way, with loads of success. If it's time to find your feet and live the life you deserve, there's no better time than right now!
Mission statement – To empower every woman we work with to live the life she deserves.
Why us? – Why not! Both Kerryn and Nicky have extensive experience in the social sector working with vulnerable families, and have empowered countless women. Kerryn is also an author, NFP director, trainer, speaker and behaviour specialist. Kerryn's dynamic energy graces the stage, while Nicky's business management skills keep the show running very smoothly from behind the scenes. By bringing our skills and experience together to form Girls With Hammers, we hope many women (and girls) will have the opportunity to gain self confidence and be the voice for a world that encourages women to shine
