About Us

CBWN is a registered, Community Interest Company (CIC) in the United Kingdom, funded and powered by women of the Commonwealth. CBWN is operated by an Executive Team supported by an international Advisory Board, CBWN Platform Founder’s Circle and Ground Partners. Together, we bring a diverse range of experience and insights working with women to encourage and enable women and girls economic empowerment and leadership potential.

Two of the key areas that set CBWN apart from other women’s organisations is our convening power and the access which our accredited status provides us, to engage and influence policy-makers through participation in Commonwealth Ministerial meetings.

This enables us to advocate up to the highest levels and promote inclusiveness. We connect through a network of Ground Partners to influence policy, legislation, and to engage with CBWN’s global and national priorities across the world. We work with women in business to encourage and enable women’s economic empowerment and leadership potential.
