Visible Women Academy is a program of Equality Consulting best suited to professional women who are looking for specific strategies to expand their influence, grow their leadership and move ahead in their career and aspirations. We run public workshops regularly on the topic, and can also craft a program for women employees of your organisation.

Most professional women get stuck with these FOUR roadblocks:

  • Fall invisible in so much noise, and struggle to stand apart

  • Fail to focus on and build their influence as a professional

  • Forget to expand their network and keep stepping up

  • Fumble with leadership language to elevate their career

Visible Women helps women stand out and build their career Through:

  1. Events in Adelaide that educate and share powerful strategies to be visible in your career

  2. A Facebook Community that helps women find doable strategies to stand out from the crowd

  3. One-on-one Mentoring support that can help navigate professional decisions and key goals

  4. Half-day Workshops for practical professional strategies to step up and step out in your career

Does building influence and your leadership language take time?

The answer is yes, it does take some time. We provide time-tested, credible and practical strategies, it still takes your hard work, willingness, engagement and involvement to get to where you want to be.

The bigger issue often is not time, but lack of strategies, ideas that can help women build their influence and leadership in ways that feel confident, comfortable and aligned to their preferences and values.

The idea is to grow in ways that align with your values and feel comfortable.

It's important you feel good when you step up and step out. Which is why we are passionate about the Visible Women Academy and how it can be a powerful and supportive space in achieving your professional aspirations in ways that feel right and feel good.

What some of our Women attendees & MENTEES are saying

South Australian women are fortunate that Sonali has chosen to make her home here. She is a corporate leadership and development consultant who is now sharing her international experience in Adelaide business board rooms and workshops, and through her Visible Women program. Sonali’s Visible Women workshops are clear, thought-provoking and mercifully spin-free – an affordable and (perhaps surprisingly) enjoyable investment in personal development.

“My weekend was spent listening to the amazingly insightful leadership development professional, Sonali D’silva. Her speech resounded with positivity & encouragement, & it was presented in such a way that I absorbed every piece of powerful information that was shared. The half-day workshop which followed featured self-reflection activities, discussions & group work on topics & strategies for building confidence and leadership skills, growing influence & expanding networks. To my surprise, I left my comfort zone & summoned the courage several times to make an influence by sharing useful tips based on my experiences. I also connected with professional women from diverse backgrounds & learnt about a variety of influential differences. I eagerly look forward to the “Cultivating Confidence” workshop, due to be held on 15/09.”

“It’s rare that you come across standout educator like Sonali. I had the pleasure of working closely with her on the Visible Women Academy workshops and I was always in awe of the way Sonali makes everyone feel welcome and the way she can explain complicated concepts using simple language. I also met some fabulous ladies who I’m now friends with outside of the group. Throughout working together Sonali was organised, genuinely cared about the women she helped and is very knowledgeable. Her mentoring sessions over a cuppa were always valuable and invoked another dimension to my current ways of thinking. I highly recommend working with Sonali in a 1:1 capacity or via her workshops if you ever have the opportunity. ”.

“Each meetup I have attended I have walked away having learnt something new about myself and something new about the topic. Sonali is a great speaker and presenter. She is very engaging and she ensures each participant is comfortable and understands her message. Thank you Sonali for all you do.”
