nurture & explore

What is Tribe Women?

We are a nurturing community of enterprising women, challenging the culture of business to the benefit of society as a whole.

As well as our network and coaching circles, we run a series of workshops and events over 8 months, designed to develop the skills, tools and mindsets needed for personal and professional fulfilment and success.

Why Tribe Women?

We believe there are better ways to live and work. We think it should be possible for each of us, whatever our circumstances, to find fulfilment and flexibility in our working lives, whether we work within an organisation or are self employed. A happy life work balance looks different for everybody and at Tribe Women we stimulate conversations and support women to take a creative approach to designing their lives to get the live/work balance they need.

Who is it for?

Tribe Women was started as a pilot in 2018 by Danielle Trudeau, founder of community hub, co-working and event space, Tribe Porty, with support from RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund and the Scottish Government.

We currently have 60 members who bring different skills and experiences but share the same values of ambition, self-awareness, positivity, collaboration and connection, vulnerability, bravery and authenticity.

What is involved?


Our evening events run once a month for up to three hours covering topics such as developing an entrepreneurial mindset, business planning and strategy, selling with ease, goal setting and the power of mentoring.


In addition to monthly events there are five half day masterclasses, delivered by a core group of expert women on topics such as pitching your business, product and service design, using storytelling to describe what you do and managing your energy.

A self-guided personal development programme

Designed to leverage the power of the Tribe Women network and create a supportive space for women to practice new skills and tools, reflect on their learning and be held accountable for progressing their goals. Every participant will leave the programme with a personal action plan and a strong network of women who will continue to support one another.
