About WLN

Membership-based, the WLN continues to drive forward the gender equality agenda and to support all underrepresented groups in management and governance in the sector.

Vision and mission statement.

Inspiring stronger leadership by promoting gender equality.

The Women’s Leadership Network will do this by:

  • Helping women to recognise and develop the talents they have for leadership
  • Supporting organisations to promote and progress their women leaders
  • Listening and learning from our membership and by taking action to promote equality and diversity
  • Influencing and encouraging others to embrace equality and diversity and to join us in taking action.


In December 2013, the Women’s Leadership Network moved from being an unincorporated association to a not-for-profit company. This was achieved with huge support from Eversheds, to whom we are very grateful.
