Crossing Thresholds is our flagship year-long programme that offers a structured and supportive environment for women to develop their careers and achieve their potential.
What do you really want from your career?
This cutting-edge mentoring programme helps participants define what they want from their careers and lives. Together, we develop a roadmap to help them achieve it.
This foundational work has far reaching impacts; challenging, inspiring and stretching participants to think freshly about their careers and lives as a whole.
Individuals who have completed the Crossing Thresholds programme are motivated and empowered, translating new skills and techniques to their workplace. As a result, they’re happier and more effective colleagues, managers and leaders.
Thresholds guide mentors and mentees on how to maximise the value and benefit of the partnerships over the duration of the programme.
