Inspiring Rare Birds amplifies the impact of Inclusion2

February 10, 2018 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Ahead of launching her new Take Flight Foundation that will channel philanthropic funding into scholarships, mentorships and education programs that support entrepreneurial thinking, Inspiring Rare Birds Founder and CEO Jo Burston will personally fund the first 40 women to sign up for Sydney University’s new Inspired2 Entrepreneurship 101 one-day masterclass onFebruary 23 designed to provide women with the essential information they need to begin their journey in entrepreneurship.

The course has been uniquely designed to provide women of all ages and skill sets with the building blocks required to become a successful entrepreneur. Key insights will include: the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, the critical steps in setting up a business, intellectual property protection, trademarks and branding, and the essentials of getting online.

Before ending the day, there will be an opportunity to gain insights from peers and successful entrepreneurs through a series of breakout networking sessions in which Jo will take part.

When launching Rare Birds in 2014, her mission was to give every woman the opportunity to become an entrepreneur by choice and so Jo is thrilled to see and support education initiatives such as The Warren Centre’s Inclusion2Program, which is the first whole-of-career approach to supporting women in STEM fields and entrepreneurship.

Rare Birds has partnered with the program so that women going through the course are instantly part of a global community of entrepreneurs and resources and tools.

“Our partnership ensures that women doing the course are not just having a ‘one-off’ experience,” Jo explains, “but rather accessing the programs and tools Rare Birds has to offer to continue their journey into entrepreneurship. Feeling safe, confident and with an established tribe of enormous brains trust and experience.

“When you ask a young girl what an entrepreneur is and her answer is ‘a man’, you know that something has to change,” Jo says. “You can’t be what you can’t see.”
