About CWN

CWN is one of the longest established independent organisations for senior professional and business women in the UK.

Founded in 1978, CWN was the first network for women in banking, accountancy and law in the Square Mile, and continues to diversify its vibrant and influential platform today to include senior women representing a varied range of professions, sectors and backgrounds.

CWN welcomes individual and corporate members. We are a selective network and base our criteria for entry upon seniority and professional accomplishment. CWN is committed to furthering the professional and personal development of female talent in business. We provide a peer-to-peer networking platform enabling senior professional women to make connections, build influence and enhance their careers. As a membership organisation we are committed to providing a supportive, collegial community.

At CWN, our members can share agendas on topical issues and benefit from opportunities and events that contribute to both their professional skills and personal qualities, helping them realise and maximise their potential. We also seek to make a strong impact in our communities through the bi-annual selection and dedicated fundraising for a charity supporting women or children in the UK.

CWN has established relationships with other networks and professional associations operating around the world. This is useful for members in global roles, providing access to intelligence, contacts and events on the global stage.
