SisterWorks Crafted Culture Cafe and Shop in Richmond was officially opened by Minister for Women Natalie Hutchins, MP in April. She unveiled our new brand and acknowledged the support SisterWorks provides to our sisters, women from diverse cultural backgrounds, by providing hands-on, vocational training and employment opportunities.
“I’m delighted to be here today to help officially open the SisterWorks Crafted Culture Cafe, which will support more women from diverse backgrounds to earn an income, gain work experience and explore entrepreneurship.” says the Hon. Natalie Hutchins, Minister for Women.
SisterWorks CEO Ifrin Fittock noted “Crafted Culture, our new cafe and shop, is a testament to our strong, culturally sensitive and tailored hospitality training and employment service programs. Not only is this a safe place for our migrant and refugee Sisters to practice new vocational skills, for some of the women, this is their first job in Australia.”
The Cafe and Shop opening also marked the beginning of SisterWorks 10-year anniversary events as the organisation moves into its second decade, with its powerful vision of a future where migrant, refugee and asylum seeker women are economically empowered.
Our Cafe and Shop had its first preview in November 2022 and has received a lot of love from our customers since then. Our menu and Shop showcase the cultural diversity through flavours and crafts from around the world of the migrant, refugee and asylum-seeking women (our ‘Sisters’) whom we support.
