Why should you come along?
The aim of our events is to provide support, ideas and inspiration for professional women in business in an informal environment. An opportunity to create long lasting connections for like minded women to share expertise and knowledge.
Netwomen is a social networking group for women business owners and professionals. Netwomen came from the belief for women to come together to have a place to motivate and inspire each other, and give support for professional women in business. Netwomen Glasgow events take place every last Tuesday of the month online and Netwomen Edinburgh every third Wednesday of the month online.

Our speaker Joy will talk about how and why she founded AAI, including the ups and downs of keeping a small company going, often on thin air! She’ll also highlight how she came to understand her purpose and values late in life. You have the opportunity to ask questions after her talk. We will then breakout into zoom rooms for 1:1 networking.
Joy served for 20 years in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and has lived and worked in Brazil, Argentina and Germany. She also worked for many years in fashion retail where she recruited, trained and mentored sales managers, culminating in a successful business in Germany. In 2009, she created AAI EmployAbility (formerly known as Adopt an Intern). As a social enterprise, it has now placed over 1600 graduates and returners, from all social and economic backgrounds, into valuable, paid jobs and worked with over 1000 businesses. In 2019 alone, it won three awards – Best Social Enterprise and two Diversity awards. Joy encourages social mobility through fair and transparent employment methods, breaking down barriers to recruitment for marginalised groups.
