About Us

Future Women launched in 2018 with a promise to help women connect, learn and lead. Led by Managing Director and Founder, Helen McCabe, and Deputy Managing Director, Jamila Rizvi, it is a safe, respectful environment where debate, discussion and difference are celebrated. 

Future Women is busy at work pulling multiple levers to further gender equality in Australian workplaces. They talk to millions of women every year through books, podcasts, essays, training and development programs, live interviews and in-person events.

The pilot of Future Women’s Jobs Academy began in January 2022 and has demonstrated both overwhelming demand and success. Applications are now open for our next intake starting in February 2023.
