Building young women leaders in New Zealand

Building young women leaders

In New Zealand we are developing the leadership potential of young women by providing professional development opportunities. We understand that as a young woman it can be hard to gain the experience needed to start on the leadership journey, and also we know how easy it can be to underestimate your abilities.

We provide volunteer and leadership opportunities to young woman interested in our cause and who share our passions. Education and experience will empower our young women to take that next step in their career.
