The Managers and Allies Program.

Improving retention, leadership pipelines and diversity in organisations has many layers. There is a missing piece of most professional development programs for women in that they leave out one of the most critical factors in women’s career and leadership success - their manager.

Another gaping hole in increasing gender diversity metrics, is how we engage men in not only the conversation about women at work, but provide meaningful support on their own journey to become active allies. Many men are wanting to step into this role but have not had access to the tools, community and support to do so - until now.

In the current cohort we have women in sole contributor roles, women early in career all the way through to senior leaders, as well as women on a career break or parental leave. The curriculum and coaching meets women where they are and supports their journey regardless of level or function. We also have dedicated community forums by career stage such as early in career, managers, senior leaders, working mothers etc. All women from any company, role or country are welcome to join, as are individual women.

We have designed the Women Rising program with women’s busy schedules in mind. Women have two weeks to complete each module (8 modules over 4 months), with around an hour of learning content over the two week period. Adding in time for reflection and coaching sessions, the time commitment is approximately one-two hours per week. Women also have lifetime access to the program so they can come back and do any lessons they have missed, or revise the content, at anytime that suits them.

Our next program kicks off 13 March 2023. Registration is open from November 28, 2022 ti March 3, 2023.

Participants have lifetime access to the program materials, recorded coaching calls and community lesson comments so they can keep coming back to the materials to support their journey. On completion they will also be granted access to a private alumni community platform, to continue their networking and experience.

Yes. The program is open to all women.

We have a complete guide called ‘Ask Your Boss’ that gives you the tools to ask your boss to support you, including program overview, suggested email copy and investment request. We hope this helps you build your business case and enables you to join the program.

The Women Rising Managers and Allies program is an aligned program that helps managers with women in the Women Rising program better understand and support their journey. It is also open to any person who wants to step up beside women and become an effective ally. Members get access to the full Women Rising program with their own coaching calls and community, which not only helps them understand the journey women are on, but enables their own learning and development journey. They will also have access to lessons on understanding and dealing with bias; the barriers that exist for women at work that they may not be aware of; and how to be a more effective leader no matter their role. They also receive the complete manager guidebook with support for how to run a coaching discussion or group circle, and guides and playsheets for every lesson within the program. This program is an invaluable support for all managers that have women going through the program, as well as all allies, with the added benefit of making them better leaders for everyone in your business. All genders are welcome to join.

The Managers and Allies program is AUD$1499 plus gst for all program materials, coaching and community support (USD$1,199). This includes lifetime access to the program including all new content, research and resources added in the future.

We know how much your managers have on their plates. We also know that they can be so busy doing their job that they miss out on their own development opportunity, as well as upleveling their leadership and coaching skills. We recommend one hour per week for managers and allies to focus in on their learning and reflection, attend a coaching call once every three weeks, and build in discussion if they have team members in the Women Rising program. As well as the online platform, we also have an audio app to make the learning journey as accessible as possible.

We recommend that any managers that have women team members in the Women Rising program, go through the manager program. This will supercharge the results your women experience. We also recommend that anyone who wants to be a better ally to women, whilst also enhancing their own development journey, join the program.

We recommend that all women, including female managers, start by going through the Women Rising program. This is because we want you to focus on yourself and your own personal and professional development before you take on the lens of manager supporting others in the program. Our past graduates tell us this is by far the best and most impactful approach. Once you have graduated from the program, we encourage you to join the Managers and Allies program at an exclusive discounted rate as program alum.
