DWF and NatWest collaborate on D&I event

19 October 2022

Link, DWF's early careers network recently co-hosted an event with Aspire, NatWest's internal professional development network. 

Link is both an internal and external global professional network aimed at linking together those in the earlier stages of their careers. The network is driven by a collective group of passionate professionals from within DWF that aim to offer members an opportunity to expand their professional networks through learning & development, educational events, regular communications and socials.

NatWest's Aspire Network supports NatWest colleagues with their personal and professional development through a range of events and activities. The network supports NatWest Group’s commitment to being a learning organisation and one that is passionate about growth; whether it is through learning new skills, enhancing an internal network or mapping out a career path.
Hosted at DWF's London office, the two networks came together for an evening of networking, pizza and refreshments.  The theme for the event was Diversity & Inclusion, an agenda that is important to both DWF and NatWest.  During the evening attendees heard from DWF's Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Tamsin McCarthy, who supported and encouraged conversations around D&I. Attendees even played "Diversity Bingo" which opened up conversations about individual's own experiences of diversity and how they can influence and impact inclusion within their own lives.

By utilising both DWF's and NatWest's early career and Aspire networks we were able to collectively learn more about one another, build connections in a relaxed and informal environment and discuss key D&I themes and topics. 

Diversity and Inclusion lies at the heart of both Link and Aspire and continues to be a hugely important factor in enabling both DWF and NatWest to create sustainable business networks that support and nurture long lasting relationships. This event helped to reflect the purposes of our groups to link together colleagues and to encourage the building of professional relationships and networks, which span careers.  This means sustaining platforms where everyone is included, valued and equipped with skills for today and the future.  

You can join DWF's Link by signing up to our newsletters and joining our events where you will have the opportunity to develop professional relationships and build your network in a friendly, relaxed and approachable environment.
