What We Do

GWN aims to give LGBTQ+ professional women access to career development and networking opportunities in an inclusive and welcoming space, and to support positive change for LGBTQ+ women in the workplace.

Our events are generally sponsored or hosted by organisations represented on the committee or partner organisations. We also support charities through publicising volunteering opportunities and fundraising events.

  • Career

    Our main focus is to provide LGBTQ+ women with access to career development and professional networking opportunities. Throughout the year, we run a number of workshops and career-focused events for our members, such as panel discussions and professional skills workshops.

    In addition to large events hosted by our corporate allies, we also aim to offer tailored events which are inclusive of the wide range of professions our members are drawn from.

    These include events which are tailored to suit specific groups such as entrepreneurs, technology, creative / arts and third sector organisations. However, as with all of our events, women from any sector are very welcome to attend.

    A full list of our upcoming events can be found here.

  • Cultural

    We organise a number of events with a cultural focus, such as our hugely popular walking tours, theatre trips and film screenings.

  • Social

    Our social events are always very popular and we run a variety throughout the year.

    These include our monthly networking lunches and evening socials, both in the City and Canary Wharf, giving you a great chance to meet other LGBT professional women.

    If you would like to find out more or be added to the distribution lists for updates, please email:

    Our annual events including the Summer Drinks Party, Pride in London breakfast and Christmas Party are always over-subscribed and really are highlights of the LGBTQ+ calendar. Keep an eye on the events page and newsletter for information on upcoming events!
