PWN Global Newsletter Q2 2024

Spring has sprung!

Dear members, dear friends, and dear supporters of the PWN community, 

We're only in April, and 2024 is already proving to be a year of renewal and new impetus for our international PWN network.

The PWN Global Summit, that took place in Strasbourg on 8 March was a great success, with almost 300 people in attendance and several thousand shares across our various social networks. Our prestigious guests, both present and via video, underlined the strength and high quality of our network. And we're all proud of it.

Check out our gallery of photos that beautifully capture the experience. 

PWN Global Leadership Programmes

Season two of the International Mentoring Programme has launched, and we are delighted to annouce that our Women on Boards programme will be launching at the start of next month - May 2024. 

We are really excited to present this amazing new opportunity to established or aspiring Non-Executive Directors, in our network, to help them prepare for or refine their Board-readiness. You can read more in the story below, or keep an eye on the landing page for information of the Programme launch. 

The New Platform is Coming....

We are currently hard at work preparing the new platform and creating a mobile app - but concretely, what does this mean for you?

The new platform we have chosen is going to lead to a complete revamp of all our public-facing websites around the world, to strengthen our brand cohesiveness and visibility; on the membership side of things, we are cretaing a community-driven environment. This will make it easier for you to: pick and choose the content and themes that you see; easily network thanks to our newly developed App; tailor the people and groups that you want to engage with; and easily book events that will generate a diary invite!!!

We believe that this new platform, that underpins our network's existence, will enable us to drive our visibility, welcome more new members and partners from around the world, and ultimately speed up the advancement of gender-balanced leadership. 

Partnerships to Advance Gender-Balanced Leadership

If your company has a gender-equality programme, we'd love to connect with them regarding possible partnerships, and cross-pollination of ideas. Our partnerships exist at a local city level, multi-city level and global level. Whether you are an SME or a worldwide corporation, we have partnerships to fit all budgets. 

We are currently in discussions with other potential city networks, to broaden PWN's reach further into Africa, and into Asia... we'll keep you posted on progress later in the year. If your company would like to help us establish a new PWN city network in a city or country, that is strategically important to you, we'd love to hear from you

We believe in the strength of networking, and the PWN network, with its international dimension and professionalism, is one of the leading gender-balance focused networks in the world.

We are happy to continue our progress: members and friends, women and men, all together.

We hope you enjoy this edition of the newsletter. If you like the stories we have shared, please feel free to share it with your own networks to help spread the word about the work of PWN Global and the PWN city networks.

Warmest regards from your dedicated Presidents

Virginia and Nadine
