The Australian Women Chamber of Commerce is the national peak body for women business owners in Australia.

About us

AWCCI was launched on International Women’s Day in 2011. It was formed to represent self-employed women at a federal level. The 1 million women trading in Australia today have a significant impact on our economy and AWCCI provides a voice at the tables where decisions are made that affect women business owners.

What we do

Our role is to assist Australia’s self-employed women to be as successful as possible in their business endeavours.

AWCCI provides self-employed women with the contacts and resources required to nurture your business. This includes providing access to potential investors, networking groups and critical information sources. We also deliver a range of workshops designed to assist you and your business to be more effective.

We also undertake research to understand the needs of Australia’s self-employed women; armed with this data, we lobby on your behalf to change policies and programs that will help you. In this way we work to create a legislative environment that will assist your business to survive and thrive.
