OUR REASON WHY
What we know!
What issues we address
Career off ramping by ex- corporate, professional women, frequently after having children.
As unpaid carers, these women are unaccounted for in national statistics.
Untapped community female talent facing barriers to paid contribution.
External barriers to workforce return means that women compromise on role equivalency and pay to balance family and career needs.
Women are impacted by low self-confidence and thereby not taking new opportunities.
