The 125 Women’s Forum

In 2016, the FT 125 Women’s Forum was launched to help with specific challenges of retaining talent, developing future leaders and building more diverse senior teams.

Through a combination of FT-curated events, and access to a practical network of members from a range of sectors, the FT 125 Women's Forum provides women at mid-career level with relevant insights from industry leaders and knowledge exchange from peers, providing a framework to accelerate their path to senior leadership.

Members are invited to a series of intellectually challenging discussions throughout the year, designed to expose participants to new ideas and latest thinking surrounding topics which may innovate or disrupt their business. In addition to this, workshop-style sessions and networking events are held throughout the year, providing the opportunity for members to meet their peers and further develop their professional network, leveraging the expertise of other members from a range of sectors.

Past speakers have included; Virgin Money CEO Jayne-Anne Gadhia, Nicola Mendelsohn CBE, Facebook Vice President EMEA and Inga Beale, CEO of Lloyds of London

What do our members think?

“Like minded professionals wanting to grow. For the benefit of themselves as well as their companies.”

“The Forum has a different energy to other business events I've been to, which is probably down to the women-led approach.”

“The diversity of companies that are part of the network and as a result the breadth of conversations and experience is really valuable.”
