Testimonial.

Sandra HealyHead of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, DCUI have been an active member of WXN and a Diversity Champion for over seven years. I have found WXN's engagement with members and clients first class.The caliber of the events and the speakers enabled me to use the Network for senior corporate hospitality. I have always found the events to be consistently informative and enlightening. I would encourage any organization committed to engaging and inspiring their Women to lead to join WXN.
