Our aim is to empower, connect and support women business owners, leaders and entrepreneurs in the Pacific Islands, particularly in Fiji and Papua New Guinea where Westpac has offices and branches.

We have worked closely with our supporters from both the public and private sectors to develop the content on this site, which will grow over time to broaden its focus across other Pacific Island countries.
