Urbanistas B'ham & W.Mids Meetup #1
Thu 13 October 2016, 17:00 – 20:00 BST
Join us for 2nd Urbanistas meet up.
We are a women-led network amplifying the voices of women to make cities better for everyone.
We are passionate about growing women’s leadership and capacity by providing a space where we can blend our personal passions and professional expertise to tackle issues and realise our ideas. We have chapters across the UK and in Australia.
What makes us different?
Other professional networks for women exist, but we believe that it’s not enough to ‘network’ we need to empower each other to act. Urbanistas as a network doesn’t deliver projects but we provide the space for Urbanistas to pitch their ideas and to gather support through connections and knowledge from around the room.
‘Meet’ – pitching ideas and finding collaborators in a women only environment; meeting, networking and discussing amazing projects that are being led by women.
‘Think’ – debating issues that concern urbanistas and finding solutions together.
‘Collaborate’ – making connections between women to make things happen.
‘Empower’ – empowering and supporting each to realise our ideas for making life in cities better for everyone.
Too often women are placed in the position of parking their personal values at the door of the office and becoming ‘the professional’. Urbanistas is a space that encourages women to draw on both personal values and professional know how to lead projects and debates that are important to them.
