No wonder, woman!
This company was built by one woman and supported by a troupe (and a troop) of women+. The idea came from a place of impatience. How long do we have to wait to close the equity gap? How long do we need to remove toxic work culture (there should be a #metoo on toxic bosses, as you will know). How long do we need to give women the investment we deserve?
And thus far, we we have yet to find a training provider that offers impact in female and minorities retention. Likewise, we have not found a diversity initiatives that puts money directly where their mouth is.
So here we are: a bunch of high wired women+ working wonders to help high-growth companies with their HR retention through our training programmes.
