WeAreTheCity.com was founded in April 2008 with the aim of providing information to women who wish to progress in their careers via networking and events. The concept of the website is to provide services that not only help women develop themselves both personally and professionally, but also contributes to a wider strategy of supporting working women in the UK more broadly by bringing together the charity sector and potential entrepreneurs on to one common platform.
WeAreTheCity’s core pillars are as follows:
- To provide an inspirational platform for women who wish to learn, progress and drive their own professional growth.
- To raise awareness of female related networks, events & training to promote the importance of networking and gaining new skills.
- To connect and encourage women to give back and share their time/skills with charities, social enterprises, schools and the pipeline of future corporate women.
- To provide a suite of programmes and services to assist organisations who are actively seeking to enhance the careers and prospects of their female talent pipeline.
