Since 2012, we have made supporting women in North East business one of our top policy priorities.


We have run a series of inspirational events for women, championed best practice among our member businesses, and spearheaded a drive to increase girls' interest in our region's vital STEM industries. This activity has been steered by our Women's Advisory Board, made up of entrepreneurs and senior business leaders within our network.
