Industry leaders choose Powrsuit

Although we’ve come so far, there’s still a lot of work to be done to ensure real equity for wāhine in Aotearoa. Partnering with Powrsuit is one of the ways Xero is helping to plug this gap.
Bridget Snelling, Xero

As a female CEO in a male dominated industry it is important to show a pathway and be an example of  ‘see it to be it’ , if a role as a CEO is what people aspire to. We talk about ‘faster alone but further together’ and partnering with Powrsuit is another way to amplify our teamwork and leadership.
Anna Scott, Smartshares

We believe that growth is a mindset, learning happens everywhere, and know our people thrive by sharing ideas in connected settings. The inclusive nature of the Powrsuit membership network also aligns with our Tikanga.
Amanda Parish, Contact Energy

Women in our business deserve to be a part of a new way of achieving leadership and networking skills and capability. We love that you are declaring the real gaps for women and then working to help close them in new and contemporary ways.
Lee Gardiner, Citycare Property

The Powrsuit difference

Almost one hundred and fifty women participated in our pilot programme, Powrsessions. We've proven tangible, measurable benefits for both organisations and individuals. Now, it's time to scale that impact.

Practice over theory

We've all left conferences and courses inspired to act - then real life gets in the way. Powrsuit's research-backed approach focuses on small, tangible actions that drive measurable change.

Powr in numbers

Systemic change doesn't happen in isolation. Surround yourself with others to drive meaningful organisational change and supercharge your career.

Minimising mental load

Anything that takes too much time falls off the to-do list. Powrsuit embraces doing less. If one 15-minute video helps free up an hour a month, your membership has paid off!

A measurable investment

We believe leadership development is an investment, not a perk. Our data-driven approach enables members to track progress and offers organisations insights into major themes and challenges facing professional women.

Tackling the unique challenges women face

Women face unique challenges in our careers - from microaggressions to the juggle to deep-rooted social and cultural barriers to success. Powrsuit is a 'booster' - targeted support on top of existing organisation-wide development programmes.

Inclusion baked in

Gender equity isn't a women's issue. Male allies are critical to driving change, so we provide a safe and welcoming space to come together to ask questions and seek advice.
