Our Mission.

To teach 1 million women how to future proof happiness in work and life by 2020. 

Our Why.

 We want to see the power of gender diversity realised in technology companies and large corporations in our lifetime.

We want to make the world a happier place, one woman at a time.

Who We Are.

A disruptive global education company, skilling organisations and women to thrive in the future of work.

What We Do.

We help women make change.

We partner with corporations and women in technology communities, to build businesses and careers that make women happy.

We focus on driving cultural innovation and capability, that amplifies human potential and provides the skill to thrive in the future of work.

Our Philosophy

We Care: We put human happiness first in a world of technology.

We Own Our Weirdness: We advocate being true to who you are and owning your quirks because that’s what makes you amazing.

We Celebrate Vulnerability: Breakthrough moments occur when we relinquish control and learn to get comfortable with discomfort.

We Commit: If we say we’re going to do something, we do it.

We Own It: We thrive on self accountability.

We Collaborate: We believe the more you share an idea, the better it gets.

What’s Our Secret?

Our motivation is not money, it’s positive societal impact, which means we choose to only work with companies who are invested in leveraging the future of work, as an opportunity to reconceptualise how gender diversity can be realised to thrive.

We work at the intersection of diversity, innovative change, happiness, and the Future Of Work to amplify human, and organisational potential. Our extensive global networks across entrepreneurship, social enterprise, venture capital and corporate, enable innovative problem solving and thought leadership in the diversity space.

The Harvard Business Review indicates that the key skills required to thrive in the future, include innovative thinking, resilience, humility, open mindedness and emotional intelligence. BKindred has developed diversity focused, transformational leadership programs, cultural advisory services, and keynotes to build the skills of the future.

With a bold mission to teach 1 million women by 2020 how to future proof happiness in work and life Penny Locaso is transforming lives and organisations through her disruptive global education company BKindred.

Partnering with corporations like LuluLemon Athletica, General Assembly, Australia Post and Powercor along with global women in technology communities Penny is focused on skilling women and technology companies to thrive in the future of work.

Three years ago Penny turned her life upside down. In a 7 month period, she left a sixteen year career as an executive, relocated a family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18 year relationship and started BKindred to positively impact the lives of others. In just three short years she has firmly placed herself as a global thought leader on Humanising the Future Of Work by teaching the how of happy change.

A truly authentic leader, Penny was accoladed globally for her bold move to deliver a keynote in her bathing suit (in front of 100 professional women) to demonstrate how stepping into fear and vulnerability opens the door to possibility.

Penny has been published and quoted in the Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Daily Mail UK, SmartCompany, Conscious Magazine, StartUp Smart, Smarter Magazine, The Age, Womens Agenda, The Sydney Morning Herald & NZ Entrepreneur.
