What is Corporate Membership?
What is the difference with Corporate Partners? We offer Corporate Membership as a way for companies concerned about diversity to offer an opportunity for their women employees to network with other women, inside and outside their business sectors. Corporate membership is available in packages of 10, 20 or more individual memberships. Corporate Partners provide greater financial support to finance LWN’s research and development.
