From workplace equality to mental health to to climate change, how can you make a difference and impact change in 2020 whoever you are and whatever you do?

The Aspire M.A.D. (making a difference) Movement is our new co-coaching programme that builds on the success of our mentoring initiative that positively impacted the lives of 18 million women and girls in 80 countries across the world.

Our goal is to inspire women to be agents of change in 2020 and it is our contribution to changing the world!

Perhaps you want to start an equality initiative for women at your company or create a project to solve homelessness in your local area or find a way to impact climate change or something else. Whether you don’t know where to start or you already have a project that needs a boost of support, join us.

  • Pick a M.A.D. (making a difference) area that interests you where you want to impact change.
  • Be paired with a woman from a different sector and meet together by phone or Skype once a month for 6 months.
  • Think through your M.A.D. goals and what you want to do.
  • Receive the tools to coach each other to change the world.
  • Gain ideas and insights from someone different to you.
  • Provide support, a sounding board and accountability to each other.
  • Receive monthly skills webinars and training.
  • Be part of a global movement of women trailblazing change.

There is no cost to join. You do need to be committed in terms of your time and energy.

The M.A.D. (Making a Difference) co-coaching programme provides an equal platform for 2 people to help and support each other to achieve their M.A.D. (making a difference) goals where neither are considered ‘expert’.  The 1 hour per month sessions over 6 months are split equally with a suggested coaching format and guidance on how to make the best use out of the time.

The focus is on providing a listening ear, support, cheerleading and not telling people what to do or providing advice. Our emphasis is on coaching rather than traditional mentoring.

When you apply, we will review your application within 7 days and if accepted for the programme, you will receive welcome information and an opportunity to join a training and orientation webinar. You will then be paired up with another woman for you to both make contact and start the 6 month programme. We will then check in and provide support over the 6 months.

"Aspire is an amazing organisation that inspires and brings women together to make the world a better place for women and girls to succeed in their lives, whatever their goals may be."
