SheThrives exists because of our deep desire to support working women everywhere, to thrive.  

What you see today is the result of our significant combined experience, gained working in the corporate world, studying the science of behaviour and performing global leadership and executive coaching roles.  As working mothers, we have experienced the challenge of managing a career, whilst in parallel nurturing a family and we have navigated the ups-and-downs of career re-entry following a break to raise children. 

Our goal, is to support all working women to thrive.

Every SheThrives program or experience we create is researched, designed and assembled meticulously, utilising the best resources, theories and methodologies that we can get our hands on. Our classrooms are open 24/7 and we aim to provide access to learning, inspiration and connectedness to women all over the world. 

Our mission, is to increase women’s workforce participation, economic independence and personal fulfilment through education, inspiration, coaching and connectedness.

Why do we do this? Because we believe that when women thrive, families and communities thrive… and so can workplaces and economies.

Are you ready to thrive? Join our tribe today and let’s get started.
