Our Steering Committee

The Network could not function without a Vice Chair and highly engaged Steering Committee. The committee meets regularly to contribute to ideas and plans, as well as sharing the leadership load. The work is voluntary and the team follow a number of principles :

  • Our network is run by members for members
  • We are inclusive in our planning
  • We look for support at senior levels across the industry
  • We work in partnership with other networks pursuing similar agendas at  a national and international level.
  • We welcome men to contribute to our plans and join our activities
  • We consult members regularly to stay abreast of needs and interests
