The Women's network at NatWest/RBS is inclusive and has excellent content. It regularly reminds us of what we're all together for, to champion the potential of women in the bank and address where there may be inequalities. There is always a diverse range of events and things to get involved with that encourages cross-collaboration and improves aspects of general well-being and more specific aspects where people may be struggling. I always love to see what they have coming up and think they are an incredible network.
