Our Story

Rise and Lead was founded in September 2018 in the Netherlands with the vision of empowering women for leadership and impact in workplaces and in the marketplace.
We are rapidly growing from a local initiative to a global force for the next generation of women leaders.

We inspire and support women to show up with their gifts, use their voices and influence to drive change and take 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 they face when climbing the leadership ladder.
We facilitate meaningful connections and mentorship circles within our community to support women leaders to thrive.

We work with companies and organisations to provide educational tools, training and events focused on helping employees become aware of their unconscious biases, create strategies to work with them and unleash their potential.
