The Program

Meet the ground-breaking initiative providing employment opportunities to women who have been out of the workforce for an extended period and want to return.  

It is opportunity to upskill, build confidence and gain valuable and practical experience.

“With the compounding impact of COVID-19 on women, Alpha-H has recognised an urgency to respond to this “she-session” with practical and immediate action. As a female-founded business comprised of 70% of employees who identify as women, we saw an opportunity to extend ourselves into the community, offering paid work placements and creating a network of women supporting women.”

- Tina Randello, Chief Commercial Officer
