Membership provides

Raising your profile and visibility is an important part of our working life, but one we tend to shy away from, neglect, or believe the quality of our work should speak for itself.  We often dislike self-promotion, however there are many ways we can successfully raise our visibility that ensures we can meet our career aspirations and personal goals. 

You have something inspiring to share – sharing your story provides the opportunity for you to celebrate your highs and lows, your successes and your strategies for overcoming the barriers. Our most popular blogs and news stories are often those written by our members and are a great way for them to raise their profiles. 

We provide opportunities for members to participate as speakers and contributors at many of our events. Sharing your industry knowledge and career experiences at these events is a great way to increase your reputation amongst your peers.  

E2W events, whilst providing an opportunity to network and socialise, are focused on helping and supporting our members to learn about new and interesting developments in the industry or develop personally in a safe environment. 

The events, although occasionally including an external contributor, are typically by members, for members –  join a mutually supportive membership network.

When you become an E2W member, we offer you the opportunity to evaluate your career with our specialist career coach

Our coaching services are designed to support women in their aspirations and development. We understand that coaching is a two-way relationship and will always have your best interests in mind. We are proud to support you in your ambitions and share in the excitement of your success.

We help you articulate your valuable skills, provide support and encouragement in new challenges, and envision the 'future you'. 

As a member, you will continue to receive information from E2W on vacancies that we’re helping to recruit for: benefit from career opportunities and positions available from firms that recognise the value of a balanced workplace. We offer guidance, support, and advice along the way to ensure you approach career moves with confidence.  

Alpha Challengers is a supportive network of likeminded, ambitious young women working in CIB and Asset Management sectors and the sectors that directly support them, who want to increase their business connections with likeminded individuals working in the industry.

We support Alpha Challengers by developing their personal skills and industry knowledge to enable them to fulfil their potential and reach their ambitions.

Alpha Challengers are, where appropriate and possible, provided with a mentor from the wider E2W Membership and also help mentor young women wishing to enter the industry through our connections with Universities.

Alpha Challengers stand up for better diversity, culture and working practices at all levels in the industry.

E2W run two mentor schemes, to support our members. The first scheme, matches the more experienced and senior women in our membership who are keen to mentor our Alpha Challengers. In turn our Alpha Challengers mentor young women graduating from university who are wishing to pursue a career in Financial services.
