43% of highly qualified women with children are leaving careers or off-ramping for extended periods of time or indefinitely.
Career returners include some of Australia’s most skilled and experienced workers.
They have led teams, run major projects, designed programs, mentored others and are subject matter experts. They most likely will also have been primary carers and volunteers, possibly gained further qualifications and maybe owned a business or two!
They are driven, ambitious and want to work in a meaningful role and need to be engaged.
