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:
- Networking – connection to a strong network of influential women
- Mentoring – Being a pool of unrivalled mentoring capability
- Career – Personal development, sharing of opportunities and a place of encouragement
- 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
