City Women Network

City Women NetworkA vibrant community for senior professional women to connect, contribute and grow.

CWN is a membership organisation that is passionate about strengthening the chain of female leadership and advancing diversity in the workplace for the benefit of our members in business and in wider society.

Founded in 1978, CWN is one of the longest-standing women’s networks in the UK. CWN remains committed to enriching the continuous personal and professional progression of our membership within a trusted, collegial community focused on growth, learning and leadership.

Our mission is to be of service primarily to our members as individuals and corporates, but also to business and wider society in three ways:


CWN provides a high calibre, supportive environment where our members come together to make and strengthen connections, grow their networks and share knowledge.


CWN is committed to providing topical, relevant events and access to opportunities to support and progress.


CWN uses its platform purposefully to strengthen the chain of female leadership by initiating and collaborating on activity to address gender and diversity imbalance in business and the economic risk of inaction, for the benefit of our members and wider society.
