Our Story

Gender diversity has been a central topic of discussion for years, but progress has been slow. Several studies have shown that companies with at least 30% of women in leadership roles are 12 times more likely to excel financially (DDI).

Yet only 29% of women make up senior leadership roles globally. How do we bridge the gender leadership gap?

To ensure women from across the globe have equal access to professional opportunities, feel empowered to reach their full potential, and become leaders that help drive positive, sustainable change in the world, Rise & Lead Women offers resources to women for both personal and professional development to enable them to become leaders, thus accelerating gender-balanced leadership within this community.
