Our story

FW is an organisation that makes work fairer, better and more accessible for women.

FW 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.

FW is busy 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.


Our vision

That every Australian woman who wants paid work can be securely employed in a supportive and flexible environment, regardless of her personal circumstances or background.
