Wosskow emphasised Australia's need for such initiatives and resources, especially considering our current statistics of women in leadership. As Wosskow pointed out, "95 percent of the CEOs of Australia's 300 biggest companies are men - we're not on the table."
"Really the central tenant for us is that, it's about sisterhood, sisterhood works," Wosskow adds. "How do you build this monster global sisterhood of connected women from very diverse backgrounds, walks of life, ages, stages, industries. Because that would actually change the world. And it would change the lives of women who work. And, smart minded and ambitious women can change the world, but they need some help from one another.
"They need to help to build up their skills and their confidence and that's when we got started and what AllBright's become in the two years since we launched it, 18 months since we opened the first building."
However, Wosskow adds that Allbright's idea of connecting women through spaces is far more than just "bricks and mortar."
"We can program fantastic events in there to connect and empower women. But also give them great cocktails, a fantastic blow-dry and a place to get their nails done and workout. Listen to female standup comedians, female DJ's, have food cooked by chefs with a supply chain of female bakers. You know, it's fun right? Because we stand for something. All of the art on the walls is by women. We've got, an amazing collection of female artists and curators."
While a physical club is yet to be launched on our shores, the Allbright community is far and wide. The Academy, as well as the collective's extensive digital platform, is available to a global audience.
"When you ask women why they're not fulfilling their career potential, 70 percent of them say that they don't feel like they have the skills required to do that," Wosskow says of the Academy's creation.
"Men don't answer that question, by the way. So, at least for women, there's a perceived skills crisis. And when we try to break that down into what, because we're really practical. Like, okay, there's a skills course. How are we going to solve it? What skills do they need? So, we've created these completely bespoke courses. One for female entrepreneurs, one for female executives and one for freelancers and consultants. We're just about to launch, return-to-work mums, which is a whole separate set of issues and it's a bit like the content in the book when you get there...Which is super practical."
For now, while we wait for no doubt one of Allbright's chicest locations to open up Down Under, you can see more of the collective's initiatives and online offerings here.
