The Old Street Alchemist

Urbano networking breakfast for Women in Business & UWACTE Communities on Thursday October 10th.

Hosted by The Alchemist Old Street, it is a chance to connect our members and guests from across a number of industries including Construction, Engineering, Finance, Legal, HR, Technology and Creatives, celebrating the continued progress in gender parity.

Urbano - championing diversity from the very beginning

Since Urbano began in 2011, we have had a proud track record of championing opportunities for women, especially in historically male dominated industries and sectors, such as construction and engineering. Around 50% of an Urbano Build event audience are female, many running their own companies or with senior positions at larger companies. 

Our speakers have also included many leading and inspiring women from across different industries - from Finance and Retail, to Engineering and Technology.

To develop deeper connections between women in SMEs and larger companies, we added a new community to Urbano for 2018: UWACTE (Urbano Women In Architecture, Construction, Technology & Engineering*) where women in Urbano member firms can develop and enhance their connections across our network.

This networking breakfast will extend the community engagement across all sectors, bringing together women in business at all stages of their career - from those leading at Board level through to those starting their career.
