We’ve been there, done that, and have the track record to prove it

Powrsuit is tackling the gender leadership gap at scale. We exist to help women embrace their unique leadership identity, play to their strengths and lead with purpose.

A new story starts here

For as long as they can remember, Nat and Kristen have challenged the status quo. In 2018, they co-founded the investing platform Hatch and rewrote the wealth stories of two hundred thousand New Zealanders. 

Five years and one tech exit later, they put their heads up and were shocked to see little change in the representation of women in leadership positions. It was 2022, and women were at the helm of just eight percent of large companies and occupied less than 30% of board seats. 

Time for a new challenge!

The connections and tools to succeed on your terms

Women represent the largest untapped potential for high-performing businesses. We’ve combined our product and behaviour change expertise to tackle the unique (and often invisible) challenges women face and equip them to succeed on their terms.

Drawing on ten months of research, our sold-out pilot programmes proved tangible, measurable results. Now we’re delivering that impact at scale with a Membership Network that transforms how leadership development is delivered. Our pragmatic, action-focused approach turns it into a weekly practice.

Whether you identify as a woman or an ally, join our global movement to change the face of leadership.
