A look at
our support

Here are 5 ways you can benefit from our community as you get back on your feet.

The right mentor will help you chart out your career journey, rebrand yourself, and make that career break your strength rather than weakness. Most importantly, they will keep your spirits up in a journey that can sometimes get overwhelming.
Learn how your industry evolved while you were away. Get trained on the tools and technology used in every workplace today. Master the crucial soft skills that can help you ace interviews and remain visible. 

Learn from the experiences of other women who have successfully made professional comebacks and have gone on to build powerful careers. See what worked for them and what didn’t, and learn about opportunities you may not have considered.

Receive support, strength and understanding from a community of women who have all been in your shoes before. Further, your peers can keep you updated on important industry trends and knowledge about the job market.

Find new jobs, land important ‘returnships’ and stay updated on volunteering opportunities that can segue into your next big career move. Or get crucial assistance in coming back to the workforce as the owner of your brand new business.

Our inspiration and the journey so far

Every year, thousands of highly qualified women drop out of the workforce due to social expectations, family obligations
and other personal circumstances. Unfortunately, returning to the workforce has traditionally not been easy – with workplace biases, inflexible schedules, and lack of support and reskilling opportunities.

That was our motivation behind setting up the Return To Work Network.
Here are a few steps we have taken to affect large-scale change:

We have collaborated with organisations and corporate partners who are committed to creating return to work opportunities.


We have partnered with initiatives that offer crucial
technical training and learning opportunities.
