Rise and Lead Women
Enhance Your Leadership and Impact
Get the tools, resources and network you need to become an influential leader in your industry
Women bring creative ideas and add value to any role they occupy. Studies have shown that diverse teams perform better and produce better results. Yet, women are underrepresented in every sector of the economy.
Several research insights suggest that the gender leadership gap is caused by a lot of factors including stereotypes, masculine culture, confidence gap, lack of visible role models, lack of management skills, unequal access to mentorship and sponsorship, and lack of network.
The World Economic Forum predicts that at the current rate of progress, it will take 99 years to close the gender gap. We would like to see it closed sooner rather than later.
Rise and Lead Women’s mission is to increase the representation of women at the top leadership positions in workplaces and the marketplace. We achieve this through leadership development programs and events that help women embrace their leadership identity, define their leadership brand, become visible with their leadership voice, and get exposure and access to decision-makers and role models, who have the power and influence to help women get a seat at the table.
We partner with corporate organizations who are ready to drive change towards inclusion equity and diversity in workplaces and the marketplace
