We look forward to welcoming new members to the Network. Please refer to the membership criteria, benefits of membership and application process below.
City Women Network (CWN) is not a status-driven organisation. Our constitution defines our membership as women who have 10 years or more business experience from a wide variety of professional, commercial and/or entrepreneurial backgrounds, and a diverse range of knowledge, skills and life experience.
Our members are women who are committed to playing a proactive role in our business community and the CWN ethos, that reflects and is aligned with our strategy, purpose and values. Our members are experienced women who flourish and thrive by making connections, building relationships and creating influence, and by coming together to help each other to be the best that they can be.
Examples of CWN individual members include women who are employees of large corporates, entrepreneurs, self-employed individuals (sometimes with previous extensive corporate careers) and many other varied roles. We come from a wide variety of sectors and industries including, but not limited to, corporate functions (e.g. HR, finance, marketing and communications), consulting, PR, banking, law, professional services, health and well-being, academia, fashion, pharma, technology, engineering, and the public sector.
By joining us you will belong to a network of inspiring women who have a clear sense of purpose, who regularly meet as a collective to be curious, to learn, share and explore new boundaries. We are driven by a mindset and culture of inclusion and well-being. As CWN members, we seek to support and unlock all talent, including the development of emerging talent, and celebrating what makes each of us diverse and unique whilst being our true selves.

It’s easy to join us
To apply for individual membership, applicants are to email the Membership Committee with a short cover note outlining why they would like to join CWN, and provide a link to their LinkedIn profile (or CV) and a contact phone number . Following this, someone from our Membership Committee will be in contact to discuss the application.
We believe it would be of benefit to attend a CWN event to understand more about what CWN offers and an opportunity to connect with some of our members, however this is not currently a pre-requisite for applying for membership. Due to the impact of COVID-19, our events are currently being delivered as webinars and online workshops for the foreseeable future. If you would like to attend an event before considering membership, you can register on our website. There is a nominal charge for a non-member ticket, with proceeds raised being donated to our charity partner, Wellbeing of Women. All members attend our events for free.
Please refer to our upcoming events calendar here.
As soon as we are able, we will be continuing our in person events again where you will have a greater opportunity to connect with members of the Network.
Annual Membership Fee: £195. There is a one-off joining fee of £100 in year one.
