  • Organisations are increasingly recognising the need to develop more female leaders in the workplace.

    Women face unique challenges in asserting and developing a leadership style.

    Women learn by observing others; there is a shortage of female role models.

    Women struggle with the fragile process of seeing themselves, and being seen, as a leader; a mismatch between how women are seen and the qualities and experiences people tend to associate with leaders exists.

    The Opportunity A unique value proposition delivering a bespoke, collective and individual leadership journey for women in your organisation.

    Some struggle with managing others while maintaining a good girl image; they want to be liked and dont want to be seen as too pushy.

    If I assert myself too forcefully I'm not seen as feminine. If I act in a stereotypically feminine way, I am not seen as a strong leaders; its a double whammy!*

Recognising the potential of fast tracking the careers of female junior talent, the organisation offers the Wise Women programme both as an extended Graduate programme and to retain talented female graduates.
