Say goodbye to the stress of planning and hello to a vibrant, connected network of women!
Looking to host a successful women’s network, but feeling overwhelmed by the planning and logistics? Let See Her Thrive take the reins and create a thriving, engaged community for your members.
With our expertise in hosting women’s networks since 2019, we can ensure your members feel supported and empowered.
Why every workplace needs a women’s network
Women’s networks are important in any workplace because they give women a chance to connect, support each other, and tackle issues that only they face.
Being part of a women’s network means women have a safe place to share their experiences, get advice from others who have faced similar challenges, and find mentors who can help them grow professionally. And when these networks speak up for change, it can make the whole workplace more inclusive and diverse.
How we can help
We work with you to create a customised network that aligns with the goals and culture of your organisation. We identify target members, plan the network’s structure and goals, and create a calendar of events that cater to your members’ needs.
We take care of all aspects of meeting and event planning for your women’s network, including programme design, booking speakers, and promoting events to your members.
We keep your members engaged and connected to the network by facilitating networking opportunities, providing access to resources and tools, and organising social events.
Evaluation and Feedback
We evaluate the success of the network by measuring engagement, attendance, and member satisfaction. We use this feedback to improve the network and tailor it to the needs of your members.
Women’s Network Facilitator Training
Leading a women’s network or ERG is an incredible responsibility that requires a unique set of skills, qualities, and experiences. Our Women’s Network Facilitator Training has been specifically designed to equip aspiring women’s network leaders with the knowledge and skills required to create a culture of inclusivity and empowerment, and to drive meaningful change in the workplace.
Women’s networks help to break down the traditional networking model, which can be more geared towards men.
Women tend to value building relationships and collaborating with others, rather than just exchanging business cards. Women’s networks encourage these relationship-building activities and help to level the playing field.
In addition to these tangible benefits, participating in a women’s network can also have a significant impact on women’s confidence and capacity. Being part of a supportive and encouraging community can help women to feel more empowered, motivated, and confident in their abilities. This increased confidence can lead to greater success in both their personal and professional lives.
How to run a successful
women’s network or ERG
Running a successful women’s network takes a combination of planning, strategy, and execution. Here are six steps to help you build a thriving network in your organisation:
Clear purpose and goals
Define the purpose and goals of your women’s network, as well as the target audience, to ensure that the network is serving a specific need.
Ensure that the membership of the women’s network is diverse and inclusive, with women and AFAB individuals from different backgrounds, industries, and levels of experience.
Set guidelines for the network’s purpose and goals, as well as expectations for member conduct. Clearly outline what types of behaviour are acceptable and unacceptable within the network and communicate these clearly to members.
Engaging events and activities
Plan events and activities that are engaging, relevant, and valuable to the members of the network, such as workshops, guest speakers, networking events, and mentoring programs.
A strong and committed leadership team is crucial to the success of a women’s network. The leadership should be passionate about the network’s purpose and goals, and able to provide guidance and support to the members.
Consistent communication with the members is essential to keep them engaged and informed about upcoming events and opportunities.
Feedback and evaluation
Regularly gather feedback from the members of the network to ensure that the network is meeting their needs and to identify areas for improvement.
