Meeting and sharing ideas with multi-generational women leaders from all over the world are always a highlight of any International Women’s Forum World Leadership conference wherever in the world it takes place.

I talked with dynamic Australian women conference attendees who shared the elements of a women’s leadership journey program taking place in Australia.  These women tell their stories of success around certain themes:

  • Values-how are your values reflected in your decision making?
  • Career Direction-Was it an opportunity or a strategic decision?
  • Mindset-What was your mindset during your career journey?
  • Connecting-How, when, and where did you make your connections?

For Stilettos and Sneakers, this was valuable input as we explore the best way for role models to establish trust taking the concept of mentoring to different dimensions.
