In November 2017, 16 women gathered for the inaugural Women of Influence Dinner. This was a fantastic opportunity to come together and share ideas over dinner. There was a positive feeling in the room and anticipation from guests of wanting to reconnect. It was a wonderful start to our endeavours of creating strong ties with Tara Alumnae!
For over 120 years Tara has been educating and shaping girls to become women with strength of character and ingenuity. They are now increasing the visibility of women’s leadership across an array of fields. From politicians and corporate executives, to philanthropists, to pioneering podcasters and app developers, Tara women are our mothers, sisters and daughters who permeate business and families and are paving the way for future generations.
We believe that every woman is a woman of influence. Someone who is an authentic leader, an inspiring role model, an extraordinary achiever, a catalyst for change, and engaged in life.
Women of Influence aims to connect with Tara’s graduates, celebrate their successes and strengthen the connection between entrepreneurial alumni and current students. Mentoring young women has proven to positively impact business success for both parties, by empowering women to contribute their ideas, insight, expertise and suggestions for creative approaches to intelligent and imaginative accomplishments to the twenty-first century. Thus, we have a prime opportunity to reconnect our community with each other in order to fill the gap for women looking for mentors, looking to connect with like-minded individuals on their path to success. It highlights the important contribution women make in creating a bold and diverse future locally, nationally and internationally.
Last year’s event was developed with the aim of re-connecting cross-generational alumni and forming a powerful conglomerate of women to actively impact the ever-growing Tara community. With such a worldly range of experience in the room, we had the opportunity to capture a powerful image of the strength of a Tara woman. We wanted to uncover and promote Tara women who had dedicated their time and energy to help and encourage other women in their industry, and who are fighting for change every day – be it in their workplace, their family, their community or among their peers.
We have set up the new Tara Alumnae - Women of Influence LinkedIn Group. This will facilitate one of the many ways in which we will communicate now and into the future.
