Networking

Many women struggle to access informal work networks, particularly those that are based on after-work socialising.

Networking events that require participation in an activity stereotypically seen as male, such as golf or football, may function as a barrier to female staff. By supporting female staff to participate in women-only networks, you can help to build cross-company relationships, emphasise that your business values difference, and help drive cultural change.

Case study: WiRES

Women in Renewable Energy Scotland (WiRES) is a network for women working in renewable energy whose members come from a range of occupations and sectors across the industry. WiRES provides networking event, site visits and personal development sessions for members. WiRES also runs a mentoring programme to support women's progression in the sector.
