We'll be visiting Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier and Whangarei throughout October and November and you can grab your tickets here.
The History of the Program
In March this year we launched the Facebook Community Boost Powered by She Owns It partnership. We kicked it off with an incredible sell out event in Wellington, with over 150 attendees, an incredible panel discussion and guest address from Nicola Willis, MP.
It went so well and we were so excited to roll the events out around the rest of NZ.
However, in the wake of the tragic Christchurch shootings we made the decision to postpone the program. We wanted to give ourselves time to process events and the best path forward.
Since then, we've worked closely with Facebook who have kept us well informed of progress made in responding to this event. enhancing security around live streaming.
You can read about the progress Facebook and other technology companies has made to combat misuse of technology and in continuing to improve technology in this area.
We acknowledge that Facebook and Social Media can be used in negative ways, however, social media is an evolving space and we all have a responsibility to use it ethically and for the greater good.
From our own personal experience, we know the power of how Facebook can bring our community together and support kiwi women to thrive in the online world.
In light of this we believe the Facebook Community Boost powered by She Owns It Program, as well as our use of Facebook to facilitate the She Owns It Community, are both overwhelmingly positive initiatives.
Therefore we look forward to restarting our program in October and helping you, our community, to learn, connect and thrive in your businesses as we close out 2019.
