We are a group of women working in the aid and development sector and represent every area from programs to finance, boards to consultants and fundraising to admin. In this sector women think about and work for others constantly – however very often women don’t take time to think about themselves, their careers and how to get more senior positions.
Women often don’t look for or find mentors in the same way that men do and they tend to be less pushy when going for a new role – so this group is for you! For a whole evening women are the focus of the discussion and one woman will tell us about their career and how they got there and where they are going to give everyone some ideas and inspiration.
If you are interested in aid and development and want to meet some new people, find out what other people have been doing in the sector, how to advance your career, make new connections, find a mentor, find a new role and more, then come along to our next get together to meet new people and have a drink and a few nibbles – speakers are always interesting and the conversation is often even more so!
… or you can read on – check out the blog to see whats new, who is looking for a role, what events are happening (send them to us) and feel free to add a blog, suggest an event, point out an interesting article – we need more!
Now on Facebook too – hope to see you soon!!
