|Nominee’s three achievements|
Passionate about supporting women, Peace has worked in advocacy with all levels of government to create change. Peace has been instrumental in being a voice for women by changing local government legislation to create more inclusive town-planning at a local level, calling for a national conversation on women entrepreneurs at a Federal level and partnering with the Queensland state Government to provide $1 million in grants for small business owners at state level.
Investing in women is the most powerful way to change the world and it’s this philosophy which has driven Peace’s vision to create a global business school for women. In just 2 years the Women’s Business School has seen 200 women graduate, created partnerships with global brands including World Pulse, Emerging Women and Tererai Trent International and school alumni have won awards, received investor funding, been invited to speak internationally and taken their brands to global markets.
In working with thousands of Australian women entrepreneurs over the past 9 years Peace has discovered a surprising trend. Women aren’t starting businesses just to make money – they’re starting businesses to create change. In 2018 women led businesses are far more likely to be focused on helping people, creating a more sustainable environment and making the world a better place in their own unique, beautiful and creative way. What if we could inspire people everywhere to change the world in their own small way? This was the inspiration for Women will change the world TV a weekly Facebook Live show focused on inspiring purpose, innovation and everyday activism with special guests from Australia and internationally who are working to make a difference.
