Women’s Network | Efficio UK

Women’s Network

The Efficio Women’s Network was created in 2017 by two Efficio consultants. The initial motivation for the women’s network was to create a forum where women, in minority in the company, could discuss topics that are important to them, in a safe environment. The network has grown to over 100 members all over the world and now has local branches in New York and Dusseldorf.

Monthly Events

Until recently the events were run as small group sessions of maximum 12 attendees, in order to encourage sharing ideas and opinion. Once a year, we organise a company-wide event in order to reach out to everyone and promote the network. 

With the pandemic in 2020 forcing us to move all meetings over to Zoom, we’ve taken the opportunity to run global events rather than local events only. It’s been a truly enriching experience for everyone to get to know their colleagues from other geographies.

 

Topics

Since its inception in 2017, the Efficio Women’s Network has covered a great array of topics during the sessions.
