Breaking Gender Stereotypes – Calling professional women who have left the corporate world and are now entrepreneurs!

Whether in Melbourne, Singapore, Bangalore or Paris, we want to hear the voices of women worldwide who have made the transition from their corporate professions to become entrepreneurs or run a portfolio career.

Please share your views on this survey, which aims to shed light on:

1. Why women are leaving the security of their full-time jobs to either become entrepreneurs or run a portfolio career
2. What are the pull factors that drive women into entrepreneurship
3. Any cultural and structural challenges in the corporate world that make caring obligations and career development incompatible
4. What companies can learn from their former female talent to make their cultures more engaging.

Take the survey here:
