"Recent CMI research identified the importance to women of increasing their personal profile and networking.  Being a member of WiM is a great way to do this. WiM events are good fun and great value - with interesting speakers and the opportunity to meet with a wide range of people.   Why not experience one of our events for yourself  or consider being on the local WiM team? Through being involved you can find out how valuable membership could be to you  - both personally and professionally."
