Future Proof is a nine-part webinar series that educates, informs and upskills women who want to take the next step in their careers but aren’t quite sure how or where to begin.

Developed by the team at Future Women, in collaboration with leading economic, recruitment, confidence and training experts, Future Proof is a game changer.

Whether you’re facing redundancy, mapping your new career path, too nervous to apply for a promotion or ask for a pay rise, Future Proof is the 2021 roadmap you need.

Combining inspirational speeches, step-by- step guides, engaging conversations and practical workshops, Future Proof meets women where they’re at now.

Registrations for the current program closed on 16 July. The next intake of the Future Proof program will be in February, 2022.

The confidence deficit: Why you’re not just lucky

5 JULY AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Jamila Rizvi is a bestselling author, presenter and gender expert who will help you understand the gendered drivers of confidence and leadership. She will teach you how inequality undermines women’s workplace success, how to take control of your own narrative, and remind you that you’re not just lucky.

What the evolving economic climate means for women

7 JULY AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Angela Jackson is a leading public sector and health economist, who has advised governments at the highest levels and negotiated with toddlers while crouched very low to the ground. She’ll step you through the evolving economic climate, and what it really means for working women and gender equality.

Identifying financial opportunities to survive and thrive

16 JULY AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Lacey Filipich is the founder of Money School where she helps people become financially independent and reclaim their lives. Lacey will help you identify opportunities in a tight job market, while also providing practical advice on managing a tighter-than-usual household budget and planning for unexpected financial hurdles.

Knowing your strengths. Finding your influence

22 JULY AT 1:00PM - 2:30PM AEST: Mim Bartlett is an executive coach and facilitator who specialises in career development and wellbeing. Mim teaches you how to integrate the different parts of your life while embracing the unavoidable personal and professional discomfort. She’ll teach you how to identify your own strengths, and to find - and grow - your personal tribe of supporters.

Joining the dots: From what you’ve done to where you want to go

28 JULY AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Penny Wilson is a senior leader in executive search. She knows what employers are looking for and will get you thinking on how to best articulate your proposition, in their language. Penny will help you start to proactively navigate career changes – whether by choice or otherwise - from what you’ve done, to where you want to go, and to what employers need. So you can ‘join the dots’ for employers and stand out for your next role, or where you are now.

Writing that gets noticed: Resumes. Cover letters. Selection criteria

4 AUGUST AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Emma Hall is a communications consultant and writer who specialises in career advice, job search and applying for promotion. In a content-packed session she will teach you how to write a promotion-landing resume, a tailored cover letter that captures the attention of your superiors and how to draw on – and demonstrate - your experience when addressing selection criteria.

Reading the room. Speaking with impact. Staying on message

13 AUGUST AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Tasneem Chopra is a speaker and consultant who appears regularly on television and radio. Tasneem will help you learn to read the room and communicate with impact – whether it’s during a presentation, a zoom meeting or a job interview. She will coach you in intonation, pitch and breath work as well as how to stay on message and keep the audience engaged.

“Informative and useful. This program gets better and better. I’m updating my resume now.”

Self-care: Staying well amongst the uncertainty

18 AUGUST AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Maria Katsonis was a Harvard educated, senior executive in the public service when she experienced a severe episode of depression that left her hospitalised for a month. Now a teacher and Beyond Blue Ambassador, she’ll speak about the natural feelings of anxiety, worry and sadness that many of us are feeling. Maria will speak about what it means to stay well and practical strategies that helped get her through.

Knowing your worth and asking for what you want

25 AUGUST AT 12:00PM - 1:00PM AEST: Kemi Nekvapil is an executive coach, speaker and author who supports women to know and understand themselves in relation to their work, whether that be at work or at home.
