"Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment"

Oprah Winfrey

Why Now?

At Step Up Club, we know that when employees are supported there is a direct, positive and lasting link to individual performance and fulfilment, as well as organisational success.

A recent Step Up Club survey found that 73% of today's rising female talent are less positive about their careers and future, 65% feel frustrated and unsupported and 80% are struggling with motivation and optimism.

Layer on top of that workplace inequalities, an increase in underrepresentation and the great female resignation and it is obvious that today's working women are uniquely and unfairly challenged. But where tensions lie, new opportunities exist.

The Evolve program brings together 4 of the country's most experienced professional trainers to lead a change-making program to counter inherent obstacles and support culture-led female leaders for success.
