What is Core Confidence?

Confidence can be an elusive commodity – especially in the business world. Women today are part of a generation of girls who were brought up to believe that they could be, and do, whatever they wanted.

Yet women only account for:

3% of CEOs in the ASX200 companies
16.3% CEO/Head of Business Australia
28.5% of Key Management Personnel
30.1% of Other Executives / General Managers

We’re on a mission to change that!

AUTHORS

Core Confidence is a book written by Kate Boorer & Fiona Pearman. It examines the reasons (systemic, bias, practical and personal confidence barriers) that contribute to why professional women are often perceived as less confident than men. It provides a practical ‘how to’ guide that overcomes many of the limitations of traditional ‘confidence guides’ by focusing on women accessing their inner core confidence as the foundation to having confidence and success in all aspects of their lives.

KATE
BOORER

Founder & CEO of Young Professional Women Australia, Kate is one of Australia’s leading experts on career, confidence and personal brand. Kate’s results with her clients, passion for driving change ‘one step at a time’ combined with the collective voice of her tribe (YPWA), make Kate a powerful thought leader and advocate for gender equality in corporate Australia. Core Confidence is the result of years of research and insights, working with courageous women willing to challenge the status quo. A game changer for women, men and organisations in Australia.
