Location: Steeple Church (view on map)

Empowerment via Enterprise’, the enterprise project at Amina Muslim Women’s Resource Centre invites you to our first Enterprise Showcase event.  This event is the conclusion of our first Dundee enterprise project and is a chance for local Muslim women to demonstrate the skills they have learned and the enterprises they have started, and for agencies and support staff to come along to hear first-hand from an array of local Muslim women sharing their own personal enterprise journeys. Ideal for front-line staff, service providers, equalities champions and those seeking to make Scotland a fair and inclusive place to live and work.

The event will feature speaker Rukhsana Saleem, founder of the Healing Cave Centre in Airdrie. She will be sharing her enterprise journey and talking about how women can follow their passion and use it to start up a successful and fulfilling business.

Delegates will have an opportunity to participate in two workshops;

  1. An interactive hands-on bath bomb making workshop facilitated by Gilded Lily, an award winning Glasgow based social enterprise that focuses on helping women to overcome barriers and become more confident and creative. Hands-on workshops like this are used by organisations to help women build confidence and to demonstrate that you don’t need a lot of space or materials to start creating items that can lead to a lucrative business.
  2. A thought-provoking service design workshop chosen to help facilitate a dialogue between agencies and services users to help break down barriers to access.

There will also be several opportunities to hear first-hand from an array of local Muslim women sharing their own personal employability journeys.

This exciting event will bring together organisations, agencies and support services, along with Muslim women from the local community to explore;

  • The rich diversity of Scotland’s Muslim community.
  • The barriers experienced by Muslim women when seeking to start their own businesses.

Providing a platform for our clients to have their thoughts, ideas and feelings heard, ‘our showcase event promises a day of dialogue, insight and reflection.

We hope you can join us.  Lunch will be provided and the event is free to attend.
