Supporting women to achieve career success

Professionelle exists for a sole purpose

To support women to achieve their idea of career success

We want to see more women in senior positions in organisations in New Zealand. With this focus in mind, Professionelle supports women in many ways to provide research-based support throughout the career lifecycle.

Research through collective wisdom

Underlying all the material that we produce is extensive research into the most up-to-date thinking about what works for women and their careers.

At Professionelle we passionately believe that by bringing together working women from all industry sectors and professions, we can tap into their collective wisdom and experience to generate smart and practical solutions that materially assist women’s career progress.

"What makes Professionelle stand out is our research-focussed academic thinking with practical solutions garnered from ongoing interactions with our membership base."


Support at every stage
