OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to support women to achieve their personal and professional goals, while helping organisations and individuals to deal with gender bias and thereby close the gender leadership gap.

We value connection, continuous growth and real community.

Rise and Lead Women inspires and support women to show up with their gifts, use their voices and influence to drive changes and make an impact in society. We encourage and inspire women to get a seat at the table where decisions are made. We provide the tools, resources and connections for women to lead in harmony with their feminine values. We engage in deep conversations to uncover the aspirations of women and the issues faced by women. We facilitate meaningful connections, mentorship circles and community to support women leaders to thrive. We work with companies and organisations to provide them with educational materials and events to advance women in leadership and female entrepreneurs to grow and scale innovative businesses.

Rise and Lead Women believes in balanced leadership and equal opportunities for ALL. We support women in showing up, getting a seat at the table and taking the lead, while serving as role models for the next generation of women leaders.

OUR STORY
