Our mission –

* Stay free and inclusive for all; providing a quarterly events program with topics and speaker panels that are relevant to our industry

* Identified as a recommended independent body, available to all individuals and disciplines within the digital industry

* To be recognised by agencies, clients and media owners alike as a valuable resource for their employees

Background
dawn was founded to address the gap in the market for a free and accessible networking group, just for women who work in the digital industry

We are a completely free organisation and receive no funding. We believe remaining free is a fundamental part of the network
Events
To inspire our members and further our mission dawn runs four events across the year. A panel of 3-5 speakers address a given topic followed by questions and debate from the attendees

Previous topics have included ‘Are all great leaders great managers?’, ‘How to manage your brand’, ‘Do you suffer from the work imposter syndrome?’ ‘How to turn the mundane into an opportunity’ & ‘The accidental mentor- are you one?’

We have an inspiring list of previous speakers including Emma Wilson (CEO Harvest) , Aimee Luther (MD BMB), Mary Keane Dawson (BIMA Global Ambassador), Tracy De Groose (CEO Carat), Carla Busazi (Editor in Chief Huffington Post), Joanna Stephenson (Head of Digital at Arcadia Group), Alex Kozloff (Head of Mobile IAB) , Vanessa Bakewell (Head of Entertainment Facebook) Nancy Cruickshank (Founder myshowcase.com), Harriet Minter (Editor of Women in Leadership @The Guardian), Emma Sexton (Founder and Creative Director MYWW) to name a few
Ambition
Our ambition for dawn is to create a network of highly engaged, ambitious women who are committed to their own professional and personal development within the digital industry

The committee is dedicated to attracting strong leaders to speak at the events series, who inspire our members and become ambassadors for the network

We are looking for like minded individuals who are passionate about the dawn mission who would be interested in rolling out dawn across the UK. If you are working in digital outside of London and would be interested in setting up dawn regionally we'd love to hear from you
Partnership
By supporting and promoting dawn partner businesses will be offering an independent service to their employees, reassured that the women who attend the events become inspired and motivated about the industry they are a part of – a great HR initiative

It's our ambition that by being part of the dawn network members are given the opportunity to develop their own skills and experience through access to inspirational talks from senior business leaders, and have the opportunity to develop their own network of highly engaged peers across the industry

We are looking to partner with business leaders and HR personnel who would be interested in offering dawn as a service to their employees
