‘Learning from and sharing experiences with women who’ve been on a similar journey to you is invaluable’
Meet the Everywoman founders
Best friends Karen Gill, 56, and Maxine Benson, 54, started everywoman in 1999 after discovering a gap in the market for a network aimed at working women. Both are married and live in London.
Maxine says… “I met Karen when I was 21 and we started a company writing formats for TV programmes. Neither of us knew anyone in the industry and we failed – but it gave us the idea for everywoman.
“We discovered more women than ever before were starting their own businesses, and many of them felt very isolated. We believed there was a real need for a community for women in business, as what you can learn from other women who have been on a similar journey to you is invaluable.
“There’s so much I’ve been proud of in our 18 years. The Women in Retail Ambassadors programme, for instance, has uncovered some amazingly talented women.
Karen says… “Like many women who start their own business, my personal journey had resulted in a need for me to do something different. I had my child in 1998 – I was working in hospitality for a big corporation and didn’t want to go back to working such unsociable hours. On my maternity leave, I met a lot of women who felt the same way – and Maxine and I believed we could create a global network for women to have a collective and powerful voice.
“Over the years, it’s been the little things that have kept us motivated – for instance, an email from a woman who says that attending one of our conferences has made her follow the dream she’s been putting off for ten years.
“Even though there’s still a long way to go, it’s certainly better for women in the workplace today than when we started out. There’s a different mindset – a real desire to make the workplace work for all people.”
