Who we are: UK’s leading women’s business support organisation

Forward Ladies was founded in 1999 with one single vision in mind – to unlock potential in professional women. 17 years on and we are still going strong! We wanted to create an environment and community where women could feel heard, seen and able to upskill and develop themselves.

However, after a few years our membership exploded and it became clear that we needed to spend some time creating different offers for the diverse women in our membership. We have start-ups, heads of large companies, successful small businesses and women on boards – all within our membership.

What we do:

  • We offer a range of support for professional women:
  • Networking events
  • Inspirational Speaker programme
  • National Women in Business Awards
