because it's time for a
new era of leaders.
Tremendous social, political, environmental and economic forces have radically reshaped life as we knew it, and one thing is clear: Our world increasingly needs us to show up in a more human way.
It's time for a new era of leaders.
Leaders who demonstrate self-awareness, empowerment, high levels of emotional intelligence and a collaborative mindset. We believe that by embracing their innately feminine power, their "female factors" such as empathy, intuition and compassion, women will step up, leading our world for the better.
By giving future leaders access to the right connections, boosting their confidence levels, and enhancing their competencies, we are enabling women to seize opportunities, get their seat at the table and build a brighter tomorrow for all of us.
how the fu*k did we get here?
Becoming company leaders ourselves at a young age showed us the importance of not only taking responsibility for our own organizations and teams, but of looking beyond, to our impact as leaders and the difference one can make on society as a whole.
We considered ourselves lucky to get into these positions early on, but really, it took the confidence in ourselves and our skills and, of course, the willingness to work for it (a lot!). And above all: We wouldn't be where we are today without an empowering community, a diverse support network across industries & countries, and mentoring from more experienced leaders who opened up doors for us.
In 2019 we decided it's time for us to give back: Sharing our combined learnings of 20+ years of leadership experience with our community and giving them access to our strong network of opinion leaders and decision-makers. Our goal was and is to empower the next generation of female leaders to step into their superpower by connecting them with the people and resources needed to succeed.
The female factor is our extended, global inner circle of (future) female leaders, ready to support each other and shape a better world, together.
