Imperial Women's Network committee

The Imperial Women’s Network

The Imperial Women’s Network welcomes alumni from Imperial College London, and friends interested in advancing women’s leadership in business.  Our supportive community represents an exclusive network with access to a unique mix of corporate leaders. 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 Imperial Women’s Network was established in early 2016 and is driven by Imperial College London and Business School alumni:

  • Xia Chen (MSc Management 2015), Enterprise Architect, Inchcape Plc.
  • Audrey Vanderpuye (BSc Biology 2007), Chartered Surveyor, Deloitte Real Estate
  • Julia Osetrova (MSc Strategic Marketing 2013), Account Manager, Hawkeye
  • Angela Malik (MBA 2019), Founder and CEO, Planet Nourish
  • Ximena Montano (BSc Microbiology 1980, PhD Biochemistry 1984), Honorary Lecturer, King's College London
  • Vivian Tam (MBA 2017), Senior Strategic Consultant, Government of Ontario, Canada

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.
