“Gender neutrality” may have been the buzz word of the nineties, but perhaps now it is time to acknowledge that gender differences still exist, and to ask “how can we access this talent?”

VM Learning’s Women As Leaders program has been delivered to over 3,500 women since 1994. Designed by award winning facilitator Julie Verner-Mackay, this is a must-attend for any woman who wants to fulfill her leadership potential.
