Are you hosting events during COVID-19?

Until it is safe to meet in person again, our regular calendar of events has turned virtual. Find the schedule of upcoming virtual events here. But don’t worry, we’ll be back hosting in-person events as soon as possible.

I am living overseas or outside of Sydney and Melbourne, which membership should I choose?

The Gold membership is best for you as it gives you full access to Future Women and the Future Proof webinar series which is delivered virtually and recorded if you miss it. Gold offers the best value if you want to connect, learn and lead.

What is the FW newsletter and why should I pay for it?

We know you’re busy, so we deliver your membership highlights straight to your inbox, no fuss. It takes a team of talented people to produce our newsletters. Trust us, your inbox won’t know what hit it.

What member perks and discounts does FW membership offer?

Too many businesses promise discounts but they are often disappointing. The brands we have partnered with are ones that we use and like. We’re confident you’ll agree that 20% off brands such as General Assembly, Ettitude and The Blow are great value and go a long way to recovering the value of your membership.

Can I find a mentor through my Future Women membership?

We know a successful mentoring relationship depends on a personal connection between the mentor and mentee. Our closed Facebook group advertises mentor/mentee opportunities and the Members Directory is your Rolodex to all members. We encourage you to reach out to anyone you think might be suitable. Every month we also host group Speed Mentoring sessions for Gold members which are advertised inside the member-only Facebook community. These are practical sessions designed to empower you to take your next steps.

Is there a student discount?

Our Red membership is deliberately set at $49 per year and can be paid on a monthly basis to cater for students and anyone on a tight budget. As a team of journalists, we passionately believe in the importance of producing quality content and your membership fees are supporting ambitious female journalism.

Can men become members and attend FW events?

Future Women is a club for people of all genders and we encourage everyone to join and attend events. FW is for men who want to learn, who know when to be silent and simply listen, and who realise that gender equality doesn’t just benefit women but benefits everyone. We welcome the men who want to be part of building a fairer and better world.
