Inspiring Women & Organisations

Through our work we meet many inspiring women – women like us who are working hard to find the right balance between family life and doing work that really matters to us so we can live happy, fulfilled lives and be the best we can. All of our featured women are real life women like you or I, they’re not celebrities with a wealth of resources to help them, they are real women juggling the pressures of life as a working woman everyday.

We also work with some incredible organisations who put people at the heart of what they do. Organisations who embrace flexible and agile working and recognise the contribution of all of the people and the difference they make.

So here we share the stories of some of the women who inspire us, check back soon as we will be adding some organisational stories too.
