The Women of Waterproofing group enjoyed a networking lunch in January to meet and connect but also to consider how to attract, retain and inspire women into the waterproofing sector.
The event was sponsored by Delta Membrane Systems Limited.
“The Women of Waterproofing Networking Group is open to any women or professional in the waterproofing sector” said Rachel Munro, co-founder of the WoW Networking Group. “We’re a unique networking group, we don’t charge a membership fee, however, we are keen to find lunch sponsors. It’s simply an opportunity to network with like-minded women in an informal atmosphere”.
Georgia Burbridge (co-founder) added “I think the reason for the success of the Women of Waterproofing Networking group is that we never forget that ultimately we are all there to make connections and help each other do business more effectively, whilst the lunch and socialising are fun. We believe that a strong network of peers and role models can be the first step towards attracting, retaining and inspiring women to join the waterproofing sector”.
Members of the Women of Waterproofing Networking Group are involved in numerous industry projects throughout the UK with many having crossed-disciplines from surveyors to administrators.
The WOW ladies agreed half yearly networking lunches would suit the group until more members were able to join and then looking to hold more regular lunches as the networking group evolves. The ladies agreed the LinkedIn Group is a fantastic tool for keeping in touch, however Rachel and Georgia would act as mediators should anyone seek assistance across the fields of disciplines.
The Group is currently looking for a sponsor of the next catch up. The next luncheon date is Friday 14 June 2019.
