North West Women’s Network

Connect. Develop. Inspire

Launched on International Women’s Day 2007, our Women’s Network provides members with a platform to connect with other leading regional business professionals across a programme of events.

A regional community

‘At Deloitte, gender diversity is a key business priority. We are taking the necessary steps to ensure that women can succeed in our firm and create a real impact. Our external network aims to achieve the same by connecting groups of leading North West business women in a supportive, business focussed environment. Throughout the year, we are committed to providing events and opportunities to exchange ideas, network with likeminded individuals and to be part of a vibrant community of professional women.’
