“We all noticed the same thing,” Ms Spicer said. “Women who felt like they didn’t deserve to be heard, or being talked over by male colleagues. And, in many cases, simply having their ideas dismissed.”

While workplace structures, such as the 15.3% gender pay gap, unconscious bias and ‘boys’ clubs’, are holding women back, training in breaking down these barriers is priceless.

“From women who are a couple of years into their careers, to women transitioning into leadership roles, there’s an appetite to take more control in the professional environment,” Ms Loch said.
