“Only 26% of Organisations have more than 80% women in leadership positions in the social impact sector”

EquiLead is determined to alter this statistic.

Anchored in the values of “Equity” and “Leadership”, we, at EquiLead, envision an ecosystem where women’s leadership will empower social impact-focused institutions to become gender-just organisations of the future: where workplaces, leadership pathways and institutional intent and structures will be gender intentional, inclusive and equitable.

Our Approach

Enabling Talent

We help organisations hire the right individuals to aid them in achieving their goals and mission. For this, we connect them with exemplary women professionals with the apt leadership knowledge, skills and aptitude.

Capacity Building

We help organisations build capability and achieve excellence in the areas of human capital and organisational development. Through learning, we help them make and meet their gender equity goals at the workplace for the evolution and execution of effective policies and practices

Thought Leadership

We build dialogues through knowledge sessions and research to accelerate solutions and inspire systemic and collective action. We help them: access and add to research and data; lead, participate and evolve gender-sensitive dialogues; showcase good practices; and forge meaningful collaborations.

Communications and Visibility

We shed light on unconscious bias in the workplace, engaging in conversations to promote the creation of inclusive environments that benefit all. Our focus includes crafting narratives around “reasonable accommodations” and fostering safe workplaces for everyone.

Workplace Culture and Community

We are actively cultivating a supportive community that champions allyship, creating a space where women can guide, mentor, and access support and safe spaces. We strive to be a platform that facilitates women in accessing work opportunities, including jobs, upskilling, and mentorship.
