IWF Australia - who do we seek?

iwfaustralia-karen-steph.jpg

IWF is a one-of-a-kind organisation comprised of friendships, influence, power and purpose. We are an invitation only organisation adhering to strict membership criteria handed down from nearly half a decade of women connecting as leaders.

“IWFA is looking for a woman of influence, a leader who excels in her field, who is driven to make a difference and who represents the vibrancy of her community. We seek a woman who is open, real and kind, who lifts as she climbs, and who adds to the diversity of our collective.”

Our local chapter mandate, to ‘connect as women and grow as leaders’ stems from our belief that to enjoy our leadership journeys and to reach our full potential we need people around us who truly understand our challenges from a professional perspective and support our endeavours on a personal level.

We embrace each other as a sisterhood comprised of ‘professional friends’... it’s pretty cool!
