Science & Engineering

Networking begins at the WeAreFutureLeaders conference

Here we have detailed just a few of the Science & Engineering Women’s Networking groups that either hold specific events across the UK or meet up at regular forums. All of these female networks have something in common. They all create environments and host events where professional women can learn, meet other women and share experiences.

As you would expect of WeAreTheCity, all of these groups have been recommended by existing members, in fact we are members of most of them ourselves and highly support their commitment to progress women both personally professionally. So why not take the plunge and join one of these groups at their next event, you just never know where the journey may take you or who you might meet. 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 women in the UK more broadly by bringing together the charity sector and potential entrepreneurs on to one common platform.
