Project Woman is the ground breaking initiative that is bridging the gap between corporations and their employees. Having experience supporting large finance and creative companies in London, alongside their global offices, we are the voice that is elevating communication, reducing the loss of women from the workplace (900,000 women left their jobs in the UK going through MEnopause because they didn’t feel they had the support to stay) as well as increasing productivity across the board.
