Welcome To Rise & Lead Institute

The Rise & Lead Institute is a leadership development consulting and training firm focused on supporting corporate organisations to accelerate female leadership.

As we progress towards a more diverse and inclusive society, it’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to develop and support female leadership. This is where we come in.

Our consultants help companies in two primary ways:

Developing Women Leaders: We design programs aimed at developing female leadership and increasing their leadership effectiveness.

Corporate Mentorship: We design and implement mentoring programs that provide actual value. We start by first assessing the current culture through facilitating a strategy workshop, focus group discussions and employee engagement assessments focused on helping organizations with listening to their employees to achieve deep alignment centered around a shared mission.

Our How

Our approach is based on research that shows individual empowerment and systemic change are both necessary to close the gender gap in leadership. By empowering women with the necessary skills and knowledge to succeed and partnering with businesses to create more inclusive cultures, we believe we can make a significant impact on this important issue.


This program was certainly insightful and full of practical lessons that every woman in leadership, or aspiring to be, should apply in their roles.
I am so grateful for this opportunity & I look forward to paying it forward.

It was really nice to see that you are not alone, we are not alone, in facing these questions or situations. It helped me to grow in confidence and the way I now address things.
And now, I have discovered that I need to have a plan.

The opportunity has been an eye-opener. Amidst every other thing, one thing that I will never forget is the fact that I have the right to ask for what I want in my career.
There is no point in playing small. If I want it, and I know that I deserve it, then I should ask.
