We are a network of people passionate about supporting women in their careers
The network is led by representatives from Bradford Council, the University of Bradford, and the NHS, but any woman working in the Bradford District is welcome to join and attend our events. The network has strong ties to the Act as One Partnership.
As we are in the early stages of development, we are still determining our mission and aims. But our general goal is to provide a supportive space for women where they can bring their whole selves to access a network of support as they navigate their careers. We would like to offer women a space to share opportunities for development and are currently pursuing a mentoring partnership arrangement with the Race Equality Network (REN).
There are still significant barriers that reduce women’s opportunities to access professional development and that minimise women’s voices once they get to the table. There are even more obstacles for women who are part of the global majority, have a disability, are working class, and/or are part of the LGBTQ+ community, etc. Our network seeks to recognise these intersectional experiences and provide a safe space for all women.
In order to prevent the network becoming an exclusive space, there is no membership fee to join.
If you have any suggestions or would like to propose an event or opportunity, please do get in contact.
