Without our committed volunteers, PWN Global would simply not exist.
It's thanks to the dedicated support of over 300 of our members that we are able to offer events, programmes and resources that support you in realising your true potential and advancing gender balanced leadership. Read some of the stories to see how volunteering has helped our members to develop new skills, make real change in their organisations and achieve their career goals.
If you are already a top leader in your company, or want to experience what leadership at the top is like, we need your help! The nature of volunteerism is transitory, so we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to get involved.
