Women@Work Local Networks

The Workers' Educational Association Women@Work project aims to dismantle the barriers caused by rural isolation, poverty, and inequality, and to give women a voice in the home, at work and in the community.

There are seven network areas across the Highlands : Caithness; Sutherland; Ross-shire; Skye & Lochalsh; Lochaber; Inveress; and Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey. Each area has a Local Network Coordinator who helps to ensure that equality and diversity happens at grass roots level.

From April 2015 - June 2016, over 400 women took part in 42 events across the Highlands. We expect the next 12 months to be just as dynamic.

You can find out what's happening in your area by checking this website and following us on Facebook and Twitter. Join the conversation and have your voice heard.
