Cityworks is part of the Cityparents Group of organisations, which also includes the professional networks Cityparents, and Cityparents Influencers.
The Cityparents network comprises 4 inclusive, award-winning networks for City professionals who have a shared interest in balancing home/family life with a progressive career.
We have over 14,000 members in London representing the law, banking/finance, management consultancy, human resources and accountancy. Our aims are:
- To provide peer support to those balancing careers and home responsibilities
- To help members achieve flexibility in the workplace and maintain career trajectory
- To provide a schedule of informative networking events at convenient times in the City and Canary Wharf, covering relevant topics.
Louisa Symington-Mills founded Citymothers in late 2012, with the aim of providing a networking forum for working mothers. In April 2014, Cityfathers was launched to provide a similar offering for working fathers. In November 2015, the website was rebranded Cityparents to reflect our fully inclusive ethos and the diversity of our member base.
As an employer, there are many ways you can get involved with Cityparents - by giving your employees unlimited access to our events through Corporate Access, joining Cityparents Policy Works, using our Mentoring Scheme, or engaging us to work with you on Bespoke solutions.
Cityparents Influencers is a new network aimed at encouraging cultural change in the City. Any member of the Cityparents network employed in a professional role can join Influencers. Becoming an Influencer means you'd like to work together with Cityparents to encourage cultural change in the City. You simply need to be committed to promoting progress within your organisation or profession. You may be doing this already, or have a desire to participate in bringing about such change.
The Influencers network offers specific events, resources and support to provide its members with the toolkit to promote progress within their organisation. Particular areas that we'd expect Influencers to focus on include flexible working practices, wellbeing and mental health, gender pay gap transparency and action, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, parental leave policies, career progression opportunities, recruitment practices, talent retention, workplace behaviour and the practical implementation of internal policies.
