Welcome to Women on the Wharf

Welcome to the Women on the Wharf site!

Women on the Wharf (WOTW) is a network of professionals from member organisations across Canary Wharf.  With its unique geographic focus we can organise and signpost events and encourage networking both face-to-face and on-line, with the objective of supporting the career progression of women professionals in participating member organisations.

In 2016, WOTW will focus on “Empowering Women in the Workplace” – connecting women to enable them to support each other through shared experiences, ideas and increasing their impact in the work place.

There are four key pillars which drive this impact:

  1. Networking – connection to a strong network of influential women
  2. Mentoring – Being a pool of unrivalled mentoring capability
  3. Career – Personal development, sharing of opportunities and a place of encouragement
  4. Education – access to member-firm knowledge sharing events, provision of relevant speakers, opening up courses across the members and more.

Many organisations across the wharf are already members including: Barclays, BP, Citi, Clifford Chance, Credit Suisse, HSBC, KPMG, Mastercard, State Street and Thomson Reuters.  If your organisation is a member of WOTW we look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events. If you would like your organisation to join WOTW, please reachout to us: womenonthewharf@kpmg.co.uk.
