About

Doubling as both a movement and a collective, THE TRIBE brings together a curated phenomenal group of women to inspire, encourage and support each other in a celebratory atmosphere – whether online through conversation, forum and engagement, or offline through events (intimate or large), THE TRIBE is about encouraging a shift in mindset.

From having ‘too much to do and too little time’, to managing change and balancing both work and life, today’s woman is adept at spinning multiple plates, even with insufficient encouragement and, more importantly, not enough time spent celebrating her current achievements before more expectations are heaped on. Understanding the immediate need for a positive mindset and a space to celebrate the now and all that has already been achieved, THE TRIBE encourages a shift towards a different mindset, one calling for celebration of the now and true affirmation of self. Whilst the expectations mount, now, more than ever, women need an outlet and rallying cry to energise us, we believe that women are realising more and more that we need to opt-in to creating the spaces to nurture ourselves, or we will never have them.

Each evening hosted by THE TRIBE, women representing a plethora of industries including Fashion, Media, Business, Law, Food, Drink, Art & Design, Lifestyle, Sport & Entertainment, Science and Public Life, will come together in a positive space to celebrate the now and be supported with the positive mindset needed to tackle the future. The Golden Era has returned, and THE TRIBE defines it by celebrating who we are right now. We encourage women to look forward to making real connections, valuing the women they will spend time with, and cutting through the tech-ridden noise of living in this day and age. THE TRIBE supports forging authentic, lasting relationships in a supportive and affirming environment.

Above all, we want a woman’s experience with THE TRIBE to be fun, but also impactful. We live in a high-pressure world, where each and every one of us does it all, or at least tries to. One of the things we always loved about the Studio 54 days was that boy did they seem to know how to have fun, come rain or shine. THE TRIBE believes women need something like this, celebrations like this, and we didn’t see one – so we started hosted evenings to create that energy. To find out more about joining us, fill in the form here and we will get back to you – we are looking for women who will bring energy and purpose to our tribe, we are an anti-bullying, strictly supportive group.

We believe in the butterfly effect. Our collective also fundraises for women globally, working with a range of organisations whose focus is on empowering women around the world. More to come on that soon – for now, stay tuned and thank you for TRIBE-ing with us.
