Welcome to the Imperial Women's Network

The Imperial Women’s Alumni Network was established in 2016 and and aims to promote the exchange of inspirational ideas, know-how, resources and insights. It is led by a group of passionate and dedicated alumni volunteers who work to deliver a series of professional and personal development opportunities for their members. 

"The Network leverages and celebrates the achievements of its community to inspire and support professional development, lifelong learning and support more Imperial women to advance in their careers."

The Network aims to provide a space for peer-to-peer professional and personal networking and support for female alumni, and male ‘advocates of diversity’ who have studied at the College.

The Network has a LinkedIn group. Please note this is an alumni group and is different from the Imperial Women’s Club which is for staff of Imperial College. You can also follow the Network on Twitter @ImperialWomens
