Welcome to our WINning blog

What started as a way to highlight events and news will be expanding, as the group itself goes through this exciting period of growth and change.

We are now accepting blog submissions and photos from any members about the WIN events you attend. Or, maybe you have news about something cultural in the Irish community? An exciting update about an opportunity for women in tech? A project you are working on that you think the group should know about?

We’re looking forward to showcasing our members, their achievements and interests – and to see your names up in lights! Please submit your blog, or even an outline to discuss, to enquiries@womensirishnetwork.com. (Our volunteers will do their best to accommodate as many people as possible.)
