How Activate works

Created by women, for women, Global Women’s Activate Leaders Programme is designed to lift you from middle management to the next phase of your career – driving a mind-set shift, inspiring your career trajectory and helping you move from emerging to game-changing leader.

Activate Leaders Programme is run in parallel as three workshop series in three separate locations Wellington, Christchurch or Auckland – and are limited to 30 places in each location. You’ll get the opportunity to learn from leading business, political and social leaders while enhancing your leadership skills and building your career networks.
