“WNORTH has been an integral part of my life (especially during the pandemic). It’s a place of community and connectivity with incredible women across various industries and sectors. I found their Leadership Mastermind sessions to be immensely helpful with regards to networking, advice, and learning something new in every session. I highly recommend that anyone who wants to grow and meet some amazing people, signs up to join WNORTH”.
