woman reading a magazine at desk, women

Here you will find our guides and information about things that affect working women. As a busy, working woman, it can be hard to keep up with the latest current affairs and important advancements that can impact females. We have put together a directory of articles centred around things that every working woman should know. You will find everything from the latest government reforms, milestones throughout history and important landmarks in the female calendar.

WeAreTheCity.com was founded in April 2008 and launched in September 2008, with the aim of providing information to women who wish to progress in their careers via networking and events. The concept of the website is to provide services that not only help women develop themselves both personally and professionally, but also contributes to a wider strategy of supporting working females in the UK more broadly by bringing together the charity sector and potential entrepreneurs on to one common platform.
