> For Organisations
This impactful 8-week online coaching program has been designed specifically for women in frontline to middle management roles to gain the confidence, resilience and skills to achieve their full potential at work.
HandsUp draws on best-practice, evidence-based research and Inkling Women’s extensive experience as facilitators of high impact leadership programs for women globally.
HandsUp empowers women with the confidence, skills and resilience to show their full potential at work; to put their hands up for promotion, stretch and speaking opportunities when appropriate, and succeed in doing so.
The program will ensure that participants not only sit at the table but also contribute, resulting in more innovative, productive and profitable workplaces, and directly impacting the percentage of women at leadership level.
Why is Hands Up so impactful?

What can you expect?
Each week of the program, participants complete a series of activities outlined below.

We KNOW that most online training programs have next to no impact. The drop-out rate is high, and the results usually drop off within days.
We’ve done our homework and Hands Up is the result. Based on our experience running online programs with thousands of women on five continents, Hands Up gets results for women, their managers and the organisations in which they work.
The program ensures that women not only sit at the table but also contribute, resulting in more innovative, productive and profitable workplaces, and directly impacting the percentage of women at leadership level.
