Why I founded PowerWomen Network

This exchange really does put into perspective where we are on Diversity & Inclusion and what we must do to change the trajectory and accelerate the outcomes. Unfortunately, walking long enough – and it has been a 100 years since women got the power to vote – is not generating results fast enough. We must better define, as women, where we want to go and at what pace… Read More

Are we your cup of tea?

ARE WE YOUR CUP OF TEA?

We deliberately set out to be an exclusive network of max 150 members across London to ensure we can create and maintain truly meaningful connections between members. We are therefore selective in accepting new members. We are looking for women in senior leadership positions, business or functional,  close to taking the next step in their career  – either becoming an executive at the group level or a Non-Executive Director. We will maintain diversity across industries and will include non-profit sector, public sector and start-ups.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

Apart from fulfilling our goals, we will host 4 annual events exclusive to our members and one public event each year open to a broader community of those interested in our network. Each event will be carefully curated, featuring brilliant speakers plus an opportunity for networking and exchanging ideas. Examples of previous events are provided below. In addition, we expect that our members will be hosting breakfasts and private get-togethers in smaller groups that will be entirely self-driven and will align with specific interests of the members.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR US?

We expect our members to commit, to get engaged and be involved in the activities of the network. PowerWomen Network is about creating a 100% trust based environment where we can learn, exchange ideas, and inspire each other. We hope to attract an impressive cast of senior women who are passionate about helping each other with advancing our careers, as well as encouraging the next generation of women to grow and develop.

Our Roots

The Power Women Network was started in 2015 by Tanuja Randery when she joined Schneider Electric as President of UK & IR.

Struck by the low diversity in the energy sector, Tanuja found that senior professional women often lack the advice and support from peers that could help them navigate and thrive in their careers. What was missing, was an advantage in the form of access to high quality, objective advice, meaningful conversations enabled by small group discussions, and support from fellow senior female leaders. Critical to the birth of the idea was Kimberley Cole, whose advice and work on setting up RiskyWomen while at Thomson Reuters spurred establishing the first incarnation of the PowerWomen Network.

Initially bringing together women from the energy and industrial sector, the group quickly evolved to include senior women from industries as diverse as private equity, finance, healthcare, professional services, and manufacturing, including the toy industry and media. A common thread throughout these interactions has been on the challenges women encounter at critical junctions of their careers and when making transitions between roles and industries.
