During these times we, the founders of Minerva Network, have been reminded of where the idea behind our brand originated. The mythical Minerva goddess powers of wisdom, the guardian of life, the goddess of strategic warfare, her protective power and divine intellectual spirit, all important and vital attributes to navigate successfully through these difficult times both personally and professionally for us all.
Like the goddess we are named after, Minerva will continue to soar in our pursuit of raising the profile and support of professional women’s sport in Australia - our support of women athletes through recent webinars and critical mentoring of our Minerva Stars has never been so important as it has been over the past few months.
As Australia starts to see the ‘relaxing’ of isolation rules and professional sport, as well as business, resume under new guidelines for 2020 we ask you to assist the network to ensure we can continue the great work we have started over the past few years. We acknowledge the generous and ongoing support of our major supporter Accenture during 2020 which has made the past 8 months possible, though for long term sustainability, and to meet the costs of basic operations, we will need more funding options to keep up with current demand until business is again in a position to meet with us face-to-face and consider our proposal. Any assistance with personal fully tax deductible donations are greatly appreciated.
Investing in women, helping women to achieve their dreams, become leaders on and off the field is why we exist… if we could all pull together now we can achieve anything.
