They’re torn between work and home. Ongoing unpaid labour, juggling family or and high workplace demands are leading to burn out. Forty two percent of women worry their career progression will be affected if they aren't always available to their Manager/Employer according to a global Deloitte study. Lack of representation in senior and leadership roles is resulting in a lack of confidence.
All of these things are leading to women not putting themselves forward for career opportunities and staying stuck at the same level with no pay rise for years on end. Or, worse, leaving the workplace altogether, or not returning after maternity leave.
Not only is this a problem for women as individuals, but for organisations as a whole who are losing out on retaining and advancing their future female leaders.
On top of this, we know that 75% of working women experience imposter syndrome, according to KPMG.
There shouldn’t be a trade-off between choosing to start a family and continuing to advance your career.
ISE Partners partnered with Olivia/The Women’s Vault to provide a series of seven Masterclasses to our client and candidate network. Olivia is an expert presenter with engaging and relevant and what's more, she creates a very special sense of connection and safety in her Masterclasses. Audience members feel happy to share thoughts and ask questions. We look forward to continuing our partnership.
The Women's Vault helped me "find my voice and my brand". Co-workers say I returned a different person, more confident and strong-willed. I have since been offered the dream job after nailing the interviews. I don't think I would have had the confidence before.
In my biggest career step, my interview for Partnership [of my Law Firm], I was calm, confident and able to deliver a presentation I never dreamed was possible, thanks to Olivia.
Olivia helped me realise what a 'powerhouse' I was and communicate my effectiveness to new employers, securing a role which I thought was completely out of my reach.
I’m the Founder of The Women’s Vault. I have a unique and multi-facted approach with a background in employee engagement, communications and as a qualified coach and trainer. Bringing together these skills gives you a holistic approach to the challenges women face within organisations.
My clients are based all over the world and work at global companies including Amazon, Deloitte, the NHS, Nuffield Health and major law firms. I have delivered workshops and programmes to many companies.
Before founding The Women’s Vault, I was an Executive Advisor for 15 years in the banking and finance industry. In 2019, I returned to work after maternity leave to a bigger role on a compressed hours contract, and was met with many personal and professional challenges. This is what inspired me to create The Women's Vault - to take a 'combined' approach to help women stay in the workplace, despite the challenges we face, and to help businesses to support one of their most precious assets - their employees.
