No, enrolments are always open and you can access and revisit at any time. There are live sessions which you will need to register for in order to attend, however the recordings will be shared for those who are unable to attend live. 

Yes, absolutely. There is no pressure to pursue any of the opportunities in SheReturns and you are welcome to join the community and live sessions until you feel ready to start applying for opportunities. 

We recommend SheReturns for those who have had a career break of 6+ months, however, there is no limitation on who can join, so if you have had a career break of less than that and feel that you would benefit from SheReturns, we encourage you to enrol.

Yes, 100%! We encourage all of our She Pivots and SheDares alumna that have had a career break to enrol in SheReturns. 

SheReturns has been designed to support women with their workforce re-entry and is based upon barriers women tend to face. However, the content is beneficial for anyone who has had a career break, and therefore we don’t restrict enrolments to those who identify as a woman.

Participants may enrol from anywhere in the world. However, please note that career transition opportunities with our partners and referral rewards are only available in Australia at this stage.

The partners that have joined our mission are proactively looking to hire women that are returning to the workforce and have opportunities available right now.


There is no commitment that participants will secure a job from SheReturns. Participants will be directed to current job opportunities with partners, as well as options to consider for their next steps.

Please email, and a team member will be happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
