I’m Siobhan Kangataran and I’m the founder of ToGetHer Further, the collaborative community for women to share openly and honestly about their challenges at work (and life!).
ToGetHer Further began as a blog, that bubbled out of me one Friday afternoon at the end of a very busy week, but I always aspired for it to become something more – I had visions of this positive, inspiring online community, where it was safe to share and be supported with our challenges at work.
I wanted this community to exist because I personally needed it – I was working in a really intense environment where I constantly felt overwhelmed. Taking any time off made me feel guilty, and yet no matter how long I spent in the office I felt like I was struggling to hold everything together.
It took a couple of little wake up calls for me to realise that something needed to change if I was going to avoid having a nervous breakdown, and I realised that if I felt like this then there was a strong likelihood that other women felt this way too, and that just didn’t seem right to me.
I’m on a personal mission to help as many women as I can – even if it means connecting them with other awesome women who can help them with whatever they’re struggling with. I want every woman to know it’s ok to share, it’s ok to ask for help, and then for them to experience the magic that happens when women do help other women. It’s indescribable, but it’s bloody amazing!
