The Assembly Members Community is for women in Ireland who want to be part of a safe, supportive, empowering network of creative women.
Assembly Members Community is not a formal business network, but a soulful connection point for women who desire to learn, gather, reflect and grow together.
Our creativity needs midwifery. There is not a creative process that we go through - whether it is launching a blog, a project, taking up a new skill, an online course, a business or any other idea that wouldn't benefit from the advice, support and cheering on of other women. I think a lot of us realise we need this. We aren't made to work in silos, slogging it out on our own. We are made for creativity in community - to be around women who can help us birth our ideas by listening, advising, helping and sharing.
This is what the Assembly Members Community is all about. Taking our place at the table, making space for others and walking the path together.
So let me tell you what the Assembly Member Community looks like; what it involves...

MORE MEMBERS ARE SAYING….
We welcome women from all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Assembly is inclusive - whether you are in a traditionally creative profession, dabble on the side or you are aching to reignite that part of your life again. This is the place for you!
We believe that women supporting women is powerful and important. We are already leaders, innovators, thinkers and doers in our homes, workplaces and communities. When we come together, amazing things happen - for us and for others.
ASSEMBLY MEMBERS CHARITY PROJECT 2018
This year we partnered with Christian Aid Ireland to support their ‘Breaking the Barriers’ campaign to increase rural women’s jobs and income in the sustainable energy sector across Africa and Latin America. The support raised by the campaign will be used to improve working and living conditions, promote gender equality, and strengthen women’s social status in these developing areas .
Through fundraising efforts including a Clothes Swap and a skydive event, Assembly Members have raised over £2500 for the campaign. Match funding from the European Union means that our total raised will be multiplied by five, bringing our grand total of support raised to £12,500!
We are so proud of this aspect of Assembly and to be able to stand with other women around the world and support them into sustainable, empowering, life-giving employment!
