Goals / Mission

Our vision is an Ireland where everyone’s skills and potential are recognised by a society that champions workplace equality and fair remuneration.

Our mission is to provide innovative, targeted services and programmes to help people (re)entering the workplace to reach sustained economic independence. Our goals include:

  • Increasing the number of people that we support into employment each year;
  • Increasing our range of services, tailored to the evolving needs of people in Ireland;
  • Providing more of our services online to make them more accessible to a greater number of people; and
  • Using our voice to encourage people to take the next step toward economic independence.

The goal of our advocacy work is to achieve full gender equality in the workplace through meaningful engagement with Government, business and civil society leaders. For more info on our advocacy and campaigning work, go to our campaigns page.

History

Our  organisation was founded in 2011 by TV presenter, designer and social entrepreneur Sonya Lennon to provide professional workplace styling and career consulting to women in the Dublin region.

Since then, we have evolved into a national organisation, providing our services to women across Ireland, partnering with relevant networks, agencies and employers nationwide. We have grown into a team of around 40 highly skilled volunteers.

These partnerships, together with public donations and our fundraising initiatives, have supported us in delivering our services to thousands of women across the country.

Advocating for workplace equality and fair remuneration is an integral and urgent part of our work today. We engage with Government and elected representatives at local, national and EU level, policy makers, employers and civil society leaders to shape legislation, public policy, employment policy and societal attitudes to achieve gender parity in the Irish workplace.
