Forward Ladies Ltd

Forward Ladies is the North of England’s largest women’s business support organisation, working with more than 13,500 professional women, to empower them in their business and professional lives. We also launched in Scotland in September.

Our members are from all sectors, all ages and at all stages of their careers, from long established independent business women and micro businesses to high ranking decision makers at international corporate organisations.

Originally set up by the Regional Development Agency, Forward Ladies now runs more than 350 events a year ranging from international trade missions, training and development workshops, webinars, business breaks and networking evenings. These events are not exclusively for women, but are also open to guests and male colleagues.
At Forward Ladies we recognise the value of a mentor in business to provide advice, exchange ideas, give encouragement and focus thinking.

We source mentors from within our membership on an individual basis. Because we work with highly experienced women from a diverse range of sectors and sizes of business we can match a mentor to your needs very effectively.

We ask you about your business, your role and what areas you are looking for support on. We then use this information to source the right mentor for you from among our members.

In addition, FEE (Female Emerging Entrepreneurs) is a stimulating and supportive learning environment for a group of female owner managers to learn from each other’s experiences as they develop their businesses.
