Launched in 2017, SHE co-founders Julia Perry and Sarah Woods developed an idea to bring likeminded women together in a safe, inviting and inclusive space. The community is essentially a hub for women seeking inspiration and encouragement in life and business, yet it is also so much more!
The growing popularity of the community’s networking events on the island of Malta, has unearthed a sense of belonging and sisterhood. Housed within the walls of selected venues – guest panelists from a variety of career backgrounds are welcomed to enlighten our audiences. Added elements within the event schedule include independent market stalls, refreshments from quality catering establishments, entertainment by local artists and trademark goodie bags filled with specially selected gifts for all attendees.
Graduating from the University of Malta with honours in B Communications, Sarah’s professional background is rooted in marketing (with particular focus in graphic design) and events both in Malta and in a leading hotel in Dubai.
With an acute eye for detail Sarah enjoys nothing more than the organisation, set-up and design of a SHE Malta Networking event. A fitness and health enthusiast, Sarah set up her popular blog Fit Malta Mums in 2016 featuring independent and wellness related businesses with an emphasis on the women behind the brand as well as promoting and reviewing new products on the local market scene.
With the launch of SHE Malta Sarah utilised her experience in events management and previous work with Fit Malta Mums to grow a community of women business and in November 2018 Sarah was awarded the JCI “Entrepreneurial Accomplishment” for SHE Malta.
