Global Victoria Women (GVw)

The Global Victoria Women (GVw) initiative is aimed at empowering women in business to connect, grow and establish global networks to succeed in doing business in international markets. GVw seeks to increase the number of Victorian women pursuing export goals, including participation in trade missions, providing opportunities to upskill and learn from others.

“The Global Victoria Women (GVw) initiative is about empowering all women in business. We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to help women connect and expand their global networks, provide opportunities to upskill their export capabilities, grow their organisation and celebrate the outstanding achievements of local and international women. Together, I am confident we can take on the world!” Gönül Serbest, Chief Executive Officer, Global Victoria
