Meet Our Wonderful Volunteers!
Its National Volunteer Week, and The 100% Project thanks all those wonderful people who volunteer their time and experience to help us champion the cause of gender equality in leadership. Please take a moment to meet a few of our current volunteers below. You can find details on volunteering with The 100% Project here.
The 100% Project is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to address gender inequality as it affects leadership positions, opportunities and culture in mid-large Australian organisations.
Our mission is to challenge organisational leaders to change the practices and mindsets within their organisations to fully realise the leadership potential of women and men.
We believe that women will only achieve their fair share of leadership roles in Australian business and society when men join the call for change. We are tackling some of the serious cultural issues that are affecting women’s progression into leadership roles and men’s changing needs and expectations in the workplace, and we are doing all this with men involved in both the organisation and the solutions.
We are positioned as a catalyst for change through raising awareness of gender imbalance in leadership opportunities, conducting our own research and collating the research of others, educating senior business leaders, providing solutions for real and sustainable change and influencing workplace cultures.
We encourage you to become one of our Champions, to keep up to date with the issues and to help us demonstrate that Australians want equality in leadership opportunities.
There is a lot of work to do and all donations, large or small, are put directly to use delivering our Mission.
