The Women’s Chapter is a purpose-driven, B Corp certified movement committed to the economic promotion and development of women.

We believe that WOMEN are the true agents of CHANGE.

There is a fundamental connection between sustainable development, environmental impact, gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. 

By rightfully acknowledging what women bring to the table, we can start to close gender inequality gaps and accelerate the collective action needed to solve societal crises and climate change.

A RIPPLE EFFECT of change.

We are very proud that over the last 10 years, more than 25,000 women have engaged with us through our in-person and virtual events, through leadership, membership and pro bono offering.

Within their communities, women can challenge limiting beliefs, foster mutual support, and make philanthropic decisions that impact the world.

This creates a ripple effect, extending beyond immediate circles to touch individuals, families, communities, and societies. As this ripple effect spreads from one woman to the next, it shapes a world where empowered women continually uplift and inspire future generations.

Actions NOT words.

As part of our commitment to drive impact beyond our community, we do the following:

  • Pledge 5% of our membership fees to our chosen charity partners. Visit our Pledge page.
  • Run a pro bono Enterprise membership and mentoring programme in partnership with The Prince’s Trust.
  • Offer a W.Walk & Talk event series around the country with all proceeds to charity. 

WE are B CORP certified.

We are very honoured to be the first women’s network in the UK to become B Corp certified. This certification is not just a testament to our commitment to positive social and environmental impact, but also marks a significant milestone as we become part of a global community of 7,000 businesses which have certified as B Corps, using business as a force for good.

Certification is just the start of our journey and we are on a mission to find more ways to drive meaningful impact for women in work.

We hope that our certification will inspire other small businesses to join this movement.

When WOMEN thrive, communities thrive.

Women, through their actions and determination, possess a unique ability to spark change. By recognising and leveraging their own influence, women can inspire their daughters, sisters, and friends to embrace self-belief, pursue passions, and navigate life’s challenges with strength.

We are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive community that celebrates diversity, promotes equity, and embodies kindness, collaboration, reciprocity, and organic support.
