It’s Our Mission To Help Organisations Increase Profits By Elevating Ambitious Women And Keeping Them There. Let’s Celebrate A Gender Balanced World And A Sustainable Future For All.
I had a great career as an optometrist…except that it wasn’t helping me realize my potential. It felt hollow. So after a lot of introspection and work on me, I became an NLP Certified Coach. I was going to conquer the world.
And then I started networking.
What. A. Drag.
Salesy. Desperate. Male-dominated. And just…not where my ideal client was spending her time.
So I created my own event.
I started WiNE in 2015, an in-person networking event (Women in Networking Edinburgh) that was focused on women interested in supporting and encouraging each other.
In 2020, I got it into my mind that I could reach more people with the message that women should support each other not just locally, but globally. That is when netwomen.co came into being.
netwomen.co started as an online networking membership designed to help women meet, support, coach, advise, and work with each other.
Just like every evolving business, our mission has evolved to include giving corporate entities the tools and insight they need to promote and keep women at the decision-making table.
DEI is not just a moral obligation, it’s a profitability strategy. We have grown into Netwomen™
All women need support at work.
Our foundation supports coaches who work with women experiencing toxic work environments that expose them to bullying, harassment, and discrimination.
10% of all Corporate Membership dues are put towards the work of our Foundation.
