Mandy Richards

CEO and Founder

Global Sisters

Mandy has dedicated her life to eradicating poverty and empowering people and especially women. Holding a Master of Human Rights Law, she is a leader, innovator and collaborator and that is why she has made visions into reality via Global Sisters, RSPCA, Sydney Community Foundation and other initiatives locally and internationally including the Hamlin Fistula Hospitals in Ethiopia. In particular, Global Sisters exists to make business possible for all women across Australia, to unlock the potential of women to own their economic future. To date, more than 5,500 women have been supported with $3million+ in external support facilitated from the corporate sector to emerging women-led micro businesses. Each of these women represent a new business, a new job created or a new pathway to employment and a real difference to Australian women’s economic participation and security.
