Our partners leading the way for women in tech.
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.
Join the Women Rising program.
At Women Rising, we not only provide unparalleled support for women with a proven personal and professional development model and program, but we also support managers to become better mentors and sponsors and men to become more effective allies for women whilst enhancing their own career, leadership and life journey.

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 TWO 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.
