We are SecondAct|Women
A female-focused company helping women upskill and pave their own path to success
Why women 40 & 50+
We know our value. Society has yet too.
We're steadily losing the opportunity to stay in the workplace, level up, pivot careers and receive funding to startup companies. We live in a youth-obsessed culture that sees women 40 & 50+ as past their prime, but nothing could be farther from the truth. We're living life in full color and don’t want to turn back the clock. After all, 53 is the new 53. 46 is the new 46. Hell, we don’t fear aging, but we do reject ageism. #knowyourvalue
Co-Founders on a mission
Changing perspectives one conversation at a time. 
We're a group of real women that are 40 & 50+ years young. We're diverse on purpose... and unstoppable always. Second business together. 10+ years of friendship. Thousands of laughs and memories. #secondact #owningmyage #betterthanever #businesswomen #workwife #ageless
