WHY 100 DAYS?
Companies far and wide have made public commitments to achieve gender equality targets, however the ones who have actually met them are few and far between.
Change is a decision and if there is anything COVID19 has taught us, it is that it took less than 100 days for the world to settle into the “new normal” and embrace a new way of living and working.
With this insight, The Dream Collective is partnering with organisations who no longer want to accept slow progress and are equally impatient to see a gender equal world, to build 50/50 leadership teams in 100 days.
The formula for effective crisis leadership:
A 50/50 leadership team
Gender equal leadership teams outperform all other leadership teams in their ability to innovate, pivot and achieve the highest score of employee engagement.
During COVID-19, we set out to uncover which organisations were better positioned to adapt well in a rapidly changing environment.
In collaboration with global data and insights company, Dynata, we found that companies who performed the best during COVID19 were those with a gender equal leadership team. These organisations were able to innovate, pivot and adapt better than those that were predominantly female-led and male-led leadership teams, respectively.
What does this mean for companies post-COVID19?
- The post-COVID-19 rebuild is not going back to normal, but establishing a new normal and BUILDING BACK BETTER
- We know that diverse teams perform the best, which has once again been highlighted in this national research
- Over 250 companies in Australia alone have pledged 50/50
- Some are expecting 50/50 in 2030
The time to rebuild is now, and it starts with the leadership team.

Always awesome to work with The Dream Collective as we strive to make a more inclusive environment that ensures anyone from any background can thrive and succeed.
eBusiness Implementation Manager , ComputershareI came with a demotivated approach to my leadership style and how I had been performing, having not been challenged for a while except with workload. Day 2 was an invigorating day with exceptional speakers who woke 'ME' up and cleared my head.
Media Account Manager, Zenith MediaIt was such a great experience, I was really inspired to meet so many fantastic women and participate in some really thought provoking and challenging workshops. I think that all of the events were excellent. Particular highlights were absolutely the dinner with a mentor which was so so so valuable and the workshop intensives.
Senior Account Manager, Canon AustraliaThis was the best training experience I have been to because we not only learnt some invaluable lessons from a personal perspective, we also learnt how to pass this on to our teams, whilst forging some really great relationships/contacts along the way. I really enjoyed having different presenters for each think tank - particularly as each of them were really engaging and practical.
Marketing Director, APN OutdoorThe program was well-balanced, inspiring, great selection of speakers and the dinner with a mentor was a brilliant opportunity to meet and ask questions of inspiring women in leadership. Meeting the amazing cohort of women - we had a terrific group and I learnt a lot from each of them, connected with lots of them and feel like I have come away with an inspiring network of even more women. The panel was so good and the little nuggets of gold they all offered was really valuable.
Office Manager, BCG ConsultingI found the program extremely inspiring and well thought out, the content and external facilitators were engaging. Resilience, leadership and negotiation were extremely applicable to my role and dinner with the mentor was fantastic. Very intimate and inspiring. Project management and design thinking were not as applicable to me but still very interesting. Dinner with a mentor is just amazing, this was so intimate and meaningful and I left feeling very inspired.
Team Leader, HCF AustraliaI got so much out of completing the course. Personally & professionally. The Networking drinks were a great way to break the ice and meet some people prior to starting. I particularly enjoyed the Fireside Chat and listening to different opinions and stories. The Think Tanks were varied and some were more relevant to my role than others, however I took valuable feedback from every one that could still be implanted in my day to day.
Account Director, StarcomI feel like 3 weeks on I feel even more value from this course than I did the days after. I came away with so much information in my brain I had no idea how I would implement it. As all the leaders said "practice, practice, practice" and I have used so much already and am even working with HR on my learning for internal training.
Audit Manager, HILTII am really grateful that I got the opportunity to join this program. The most important take-away I have from this program is that I have a different way of evaluating myself, which in turns makes me more confident in who I am. It is also great to know that I am not alone in this journey and that I am sharing the same path with so many like minded young women out there.
