Following on from the successful launch of the Coventry and Warwickshire Woman Who…Awards in April 2016, many local women in business have asked for a Network to inspire, celebrate and hear about the achievements of other local women in business.
The Woman Who…Network launched in October 2016, in partnership with the FSB (Warwickshire & Coventry Branch), and is held quarterly in venues in and around Coventry, Warwickshire & Solihull. Our January event attracted over 70 attendees.
Join us on International Women’s Day on Wednesday 8th March where you will hear from inspirational local women in business telling you their stories and challenges they have experienced along the way. There will also be an opportunity to network, make new connections and we will be announcing the Finalists of the Woman Who…Awards 2017.
This event is open to all women in business, including those who have taken a career break or may be looking for a fresh challenge. Men are also very welcome to attend.
Sandra Garlick, the founder of the Woman Who…Awards, has been appointed to the FSB’s National Women in Enterprise Taskforce. She will also highlight issues faced by women in business and feed local information back to the Taskforce.
This is not a membership organisation. There is no criteria or exclusions and everyone is welcome. Attendees simply book to attend each event.
