> For Women

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.

If you need a way to:

  • Increase your confidence, skills and resilience

  • Develop an authentic presence
  • Increase your enjoyment, energy and engagement at work
  • Become a role model in the workplace
Hands up is highly engaging - so engaging that its completion rate is 11 time higher than industry standard

What can you expect?

Each week of the program, participants complete a series of activities outlined below.

The program draws on best-practice, evidence-based research and Inkling Women’s extensive experience as facilitators of high impact leadership programs for women globally.

Training videos

Each week, participants have access to engaging and in- depth training videos to support their learning. These include:

  • One topic video

  • Two to three tools and techniques videos with practical evidenced-based strategies and tools to embed the learning in the workplace


Each participant receives an online workbook, which will also be available for printing. The workbook poses questions for participants to reflect and commit to taking action. This allows the participants to monitor their progress and make the learning real for them each week. Some sections of the program include online assessment, to encourage engagement and completion.

Weekly online group coaching

Weekly one-hour group coaching sessions run by Dr Gemma Munro and Sophie Hampel from Inkling Women. They:

  • Include coaching of individuals live on the call

  • Provide opportunity to ask questions prior to and during the session

  • Are recorded and available to access following the session

    Participants are granted free access to coaching sessions for three months following the last week of the program.

Closed Facebook group

Participants have access to a private Facebook group. The group provides a safe space where participants network with and support each other. It is used to:

  • Post weekly home-play exercises

  • Discuss learnings and provide support and advice to one another

  • Encourage each other to build confidence, courage, resilience, authenticity and enjoyment

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.
