A new global leadership community for vegan and plant-based women is calling for founding members to join.
The Plant Powered Women’s Network, founded by journalist and author Katrina Fox, is a new membership platform aimed at helping vegan women become leaders in their field.

The network, which is aimed at those who are committed to becoming ethical leaders in their field, including developing skills for self-leadership, will start as an online membership platform slated to launch in June. Annual membership costs $99.
The site will offer exclusive live webinars and interviews with vegan and plant-based women from the worlds of business, corporate, NGOs, finance, lifestyle, entertainment, spirituality, health, politics and more, along with virtual networking events, online training and events, and carefully curated content and resources.
Live events, a leadership program, and mentorship opportunities are also on the cards down the track.
'Creating a community'
"I'm keen to create a community of women and female-identified persons who are invested in becoming the best version of themselves and lifting others up to be the same," Fox said in a statement sent to Plant Based News. "All while having fun and embracing your unique sense of style, self, and quirkiness.
"Like many people, I felt called to have a bigger impact in creating a kinder world for all in 2020. None of us could have foreseen the impact the current coronavirus crisis is having on people, business owners, workers, and our economies.
"I know some people may think now is not the right time to launch something like this, especially with such uncertainty, but I feel it’s is the perfect time to do it, because now, more than ever, we need ethical leaders who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo and create an equitable world for all.
"This project is much bigger than me and it will go ahead if enough women sign up as founding members before the end of April. It's a bold, hairy, audacious vision to create a posse of kick-ass female vegan superheroes that I hope inspires and excites others as much as it does me."
