Rise is the coaching and leadership programme for indigenous women. Rise2025 is the global movement to positively impact 100,000+ indigenous women and girls by 2025 through Rise.

Rise enables indigenous women of all ages to lead and coach their whanau (family), communities, corporations and nations into a self-determining future. We coach and develop indigenous women globally through an applied learning pathway of international coaching best practice blended with indigenous values to further serve their communities, corporations and nations.
