Our mission is to advance the leadership and financial inclusion of women in the workplace and marketplace so as to fill the leaking pipeline of women leaders and create a more inclusive and sustainable future.

We value connection, continuous growth and real community

Our Rise & Lead community comprises women, men and organisations ready to invest their energy in something genuinely impactful. The Rise & Lead woman is a visionary and bold. She challenges the status quo, wants to lead and participate in solving societal problems. She uses her voice and position to influence positive changes. She is conscious of her behaviour and actions. She knows she has a gift to share with the world. She is tired of obscurity and is now ready to create a seat at the table where major decisions and policies that affect society are made. She sees an urgent need to create wealth and leave legacies.

The Rise & Lead man is open to change and wants to address his gender bias, dismantle stereotypical behaviour and is comfortable with supporting women and rising along with them.

Whether you are a leader in a large corporation, or a founder/CEOs, a professional ready to unleash your leadership potential, business founder, organisational leader, entrepreneur, consultant or simply a change-maker, you are welcome to join the conversation.
