Our History

Women Making it Work was formed as a Victorian Government initiative to assist women in business in the Casey & Cardinia regions.

State and Local governments joined forces to form the group to provide a forum for women to have a voice, network, promote and gain valuable education to assist in their businesses as it had been identified that there was a gap in business in this area.

Becoming incorporated in 2005, Women Making it Work has been a not-for-profit group since then, supported by Casey and Cardinia Councils.
