AIM - Accelerator for Internal Management

"It gave us a renewed perspective to our company’s vision along with an actionable plan to align ourselves with it." Participant testimonial

Overview

AIM is the region’s only ‘in-house’ leadership accelerator, driven by design thinking principles. Design thinking has long been utilised to support innovation as a remedy for stagnation. When applied to women’s careers, participants are unlocked from their former beliefs, encouraged to be curious and enabled to take action, accelerating their way to the top.

AIM is fully customised to an organisation’s internal strategy, so you can create a strong pipeline of high-potential women leaders who align their career growth to your goals.

Why AIM?

Companies with women leaders continually outperform those dominated by men, according to research undertaken by McKinsey. Enabling women to overcome systemic barriers and creating an internal women leadership pipeline leads to higher revenue growth; up to 61 percent for companies that prioritise the advancement of women, as per research conducted by IBM in 2021.

AIM allows your organisation to equip women with critical skills; create a culture and environment of inclusion, support and mentorship; mitigate leaky pipelines; and improve your revenue, growth and ESG ratings.
