WEConnect is delighted to announce the appointment of our new Executive Director, Caroline Roberts.

Caroline comes directly from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills as Head of Relicensing and previously Sector Integration Consultant within the Sector Skills Development Agency.

WEConnect is working to bring contract opportunities to women business enterprises locally, nationally and internationally and we have partnered with our US counterpart WBENC to host 16 ‘guest’ WBEs’, who complement the services UK WBE’s offer. We aim to provide a similar route to US markets for UK WBEs soon.

WEConnect member, Cisco, recently staged their Connected Women event attended by women from around the world meeting together to discuss critical business issues from a gender perspective. Sue Lawton was there to represent WEConnect.
