LeadWomen Membership 2021

Since our inception in 2011, we have focused on supporting and training aspiring, new and established women leaders as they embark or continue on their leadership journey. Over the years we have built a community of hundreds of exceptional women leaders and continue to foster their journey to the board through targeted programmes, board coaching, mentoring and networking events.
