She Leads Change
She Leads Change began at the end of 2017 when a group of women came together for mutual support in their journeys to leading positive change in the world.
Now a growing community of leaders – collectively learning, prototyping cultures of belonging and bringing our whole selves to impactful interactions – we expand the potential of every individual, creating stronger relationships and elevating organisations to lead a more prosperous, equitable and sustainable world.
“The only way real change will happen is by changing mindsets and paradigms, so that’s what we do. We shift the way people see themselves and the world, in order to activate change in a better way – from a deeper place.”
– Nicola Millson, Lead

I have found strength in these numbers
“I have learnt that my struggle is not unique and I have found strength in these numbers – listening to and knowing so many fabulous ladies are going through similar struggles is encouraging…Knowing there is a tribe out there makes you stronger – more enthusiastic to conquer and sometimes, conquering is something as simple as showing up.”
– Joanne Uwera, Strategy & Quality Lead
We develop the leaders the world needs now
Rising to the challenges of the next decade requires everyone to lead change. It means each of us needs to learn our way into new perspectives, develop new capabilities and step into our full potential. Systems change starts with inner work.
To address complex challenges
Diversity & inclusion
Disruption & survival
Innovation & growth
We will need to lead
in new ways
Brave: show up, step-up. speak out, lead.
Agile: be able to take agency and respond thoughtfully to change.
Wholehearted: bring self-awareness, authenticity and vulnerability.
Systemic: see and respond to the whole, not just to parts.
Collective: understand others, respect others and unity for change.
Resilient: be better connected and supported.

What our PARTICIPANTS say:
Effective concepts and practical approaches to leading change
She Leads Change helped me to explore how my own identity as a ‘leader’, impacted my ability to effect culture change and introduced me to some effective concepts and practical approaches to leading change in an open and collaborative way.

She Leads Change was transformational
She Leads Change was transformational for me. I went into it full of thoughts like ‘I’m not doing enough’ and ‘I’m stuck’ to finishing the course and realising I am in a wider collective of incredible progressive people who want change, I am part of that and have a part to play.
