The 9-2-3 Club is a programme of informal networking events, with meetings in London and across the Thames Valley. We aim to enable women to connect with one another, and be inspired by others who might be able to help further their ambitions. These are designed to be fun and informal get-togethers, where we can share experiences and feel inspired and empowered to move our careers forward in a flexible way.
We line up a variety of speakers - from those campaigning for more women on boards of big businesses, to those who are successfully running their own business and HR directors working for progressive companies who are looking to recruit flexible talent. Some meetings will take place at the offices of big businesses, which will give members the valuable chance to step back into a workplace environment - and realise it's not scary - it's actually quite exciting!
Keep an eye on our website for details about future events.
