Connecting the world's
"A Professional Sisterhood"
We are diverse, open and real.
We build trust and nurture a safe and caring environment.
We are determined to make a difference for each other and the next generation of women leaders.
We thrive on sharing leadership stories, life experience and ideas to nurture our community. We are confident in reaching out to the membership to draw inspiration for our own personal journeys. We create opportunities for women leaders of the future to tap into the knowledge and the support of the IWFA collective. We leverage and contribute to the global IWF network to promote better leadership for a changing world.
Lift as you climb.
IWF brings together an unprecedented global membership to exchange ideas, to learn, inspire, and to build better leadership for a changing world. This vision is realised through global conferences, training and mentoring programs and our networks of global forums.
IWF Australia - who do we seek?
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!
