Women Step Forward
Women Step Forward’s ambition is to radically accelerate the leadership capacity of women and create a robust women in leadership pipeline.
Our fabulous baby boomers are reaching retirement age but we are fortunate to have a pool of talent ready to respond and step forward. By 2020 millennials will be the largest workforce in the planet providing us access to a generation of women who are ambitious and well educated like no other.
Equipping millennials with the knowledge, expertise and experiences to prepare them to be future leaders is now a critical organisational strategy that responds to the generational changes in our workforce.
