I’m Jennifer, a business owner and local mum to 3 teenagers aged 14, 16 and 19, and the Founder of Women of Whitehorse (WoW) established in February, 2015.
I’ve always been a social person, a connector, organiser and a traveller. When others say ‘wouldn’t it be good to…’ I just do it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but I always try. I love the sense of community, connection and collaboration. I set up the WoW Facebook Page initially to share local information and to connect women and to support local businesses. I then added a E-Newsletter, Instagram, a Website, a Facebook Group. I kept adding things like Cafe Reviews, facilitating educational Workshops, Competitions, Networking Events and in late 2019 launched a Membership Program.
Our WoW Membership Program is for both Business and Social Members. As part of the Membership Program we partnered with local businesses and we have an App that our Members use to claim discounts and special offers with cafes, gyms, beauty salons and more! Check the discounts here and our partners here. Our Member Benefits also include online ‘Lunch and Learn’ Sessions with guest speakers and tutorials, discounted advertising, promotional opportunities and invitations to members only events.
Our Facebook Group is for women to promote their business for free on a Tuesday, as well as to share local resources & information, request sporting team players or have discussions for instance on referrals for a local tradesman at any time.
