Forward Ladies was founded in 1999 to unlock potential in professional women. Since then, the organisation has grown significantly and membership includes women from all areas of business such as start-ups, heads of large companies, successful small businesses and women on boards. It offers a range of services for professional women including networking events, inspirational speaker programmes, mentoring, online resources, and leadership programmes.
Last year, Sethi Partnership Solicitors Senior Partner, Ritu Sethi, was the recipient of the Forward Ladies’ Outstanding Business Woman of the Year Award 2016. Because of this, the firm was invited to be a part of this exclusive networking event in Canada Square which was attended by Jem Gova, who you can see pictured with Griselda Togobo, Managing Director of the Forward Ladies organisation.
The event was extremely well attended and provided an excellent opportunity for women of diverse business backgrounds to network, inspire, and exchange ideas – this was a welcomed event to mark International Women’s Day!
