I recently presented on the realities and unsustainability of the dairy industry, along with a member of parliament at an inquiry. Without being part of the network, this would never have happened. Being part of the network has given me so much confidence. It really is one of the best things I've done and is such a privilege to be part of.
- Jackie Norman, former beef & dairy farmer; writer with Vegan FTA
The network is a fantastic community to be part of as you meet likeminded leaders who share your vision and you are more empowered to continue your mission no matter what road blocks you may face. Getting media attention is one area I have developed since joining.

- Frances Gonzalez, founder, Vegan Wines
Thank you so much for creating the network. I love it so much. There's a lot of ‘noise’ out there and I am prone to be always chasing the next ‘shiny object’ but with this vegan women's leadership network I feel really grounded.
- Katrina Larsen, teacher
I love the virtual meetups. You meet amazing successful women from over the world with the same core values as you who inspire you to be the best version of yourself. There is so much material to help you improve your skills. When I joined the network I was expecting ‘x" and guess what? I received 100000000 times ‘x’.
- Paula Smolentzov, senior buyer, Yokogawa
In the 26 years I've owned my business, one of the best choices I've made is to join this network. Hands down it's the best group of professional women committed to running ethical businesses. Not only have I been able to collaborate with amazing professionals, I've invited several onto my podcast. Do yourself a favor and join today. You'll be glad you did.
- Kathleen Gage, marketing & visibility strategist
The opportunities that the network and Katrina created for me and other members have been beyond amazing. It’s helped amplify our voices across the world on not only what we do but also sharing our personal stories. This has been very empowering, to say the least. It’s boosted my confidence and reinvigorated my faith in the power of women and their leadership.
- Alokparna Sengupta, managing director, Humane Society International (India)
Since joining the network I have enjoyed the ability to network with vegan professionals from around the world through the regular online meetups. This is a unique membership that provides incredible opportunities for networking, collaborating and supporting each other. It's a must have if you're a vegan business owner or professional focused on elevating your brand, business or career.
- Kathy Divine, author & book coach
This vegan women's network is amazing. I’ve met vegan women from all over the world, in all walks of life. I have made amazing connections from gaining a new client to meeting someone I can interview for an article I’m writing, to introducing two members who I suspect will have a lot in common. In a world that is not yet vegan, the network brings peace and hope.
- Ginger Burr, image consultant
"I am so happy that I joined the network. The resources are really helpful. I particularly enjoy the webinars but the most wonderful part so far has been the networking sessions. I have met and connected with other like-minded people which has been truly invaluable!"
- Dr Laura Freeman, plant-based GP & lifestyle medicine physician
I was looking for a group of leaders with whom I could connect and grow; a group that allowed me to share stories of work challenges and to gain insights on solving workplace problems. I also needed a group where I could get grounded and centered during these challenging times. This network has offered that and more! I found a group of women who are generous with their words of encouragement and their sharing of resources. Every time I participate in a networking session or developmental workshop, I am uplifted and refreshed.

Vegan women are arguably the fastest growing climate-conscious, compassionate, mission-driven group globally. This vegan women's leadership community is a platform that provides a one-stop shop for all wares, tools and sisterhood that vegan women leaders need to accelerate on their chosen paths. It's the place to be if you're looking for wholesome and bias-free networking.
- Nivi Jaswal, investor, research innovator, founder of Virsa Foundation
I joined the network to be able to connect with like-minded people; I hoped to enjoy a reciprocating and insightful community and I am thrilled this is the case. Katrina regularly conducts online global networking sessions and guest speaker webinars which are not only interesting in their broadness of topics but incredibly helpful for running and maintaining a business as well as mental health. I have met many wonderful intelligent and genuine women and I am always looking forward to the next 'get together'. I can’t recommend the membership highly enough.

The network is a collection of excellent, driven women from around the world working to make this a saner, more compassionate place for human and non-human animals alike. I love the Network's monthly members get-togethers, where we can brainstorm with and support each other, as well as the many interesting and helpful webinars on various topics about running a vegan business. I would not be able to make connections with these other brilliant women so easily if it were not for the network.
