Collaborate: Creating an Inclusive Community

COLLABORATE is a community of influencers and change agents working together to increase balanced and inclusive leadership. COLLABORATE members include The Glass Lift alumni, leaders, role models, mentors and spokespersons from a range of organisations and sectors.
