CBWN is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC) in the United Kingdom, funded and powered by women, for women, of the Commonwealth. CBWN is operated by an Executive Team supported by an International Advisory Board, CBWN Platform Founders’ 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. In the last 36 months, CBWN has put more women in front of more government officials than any other organisation including Ministers of Women’s Affairs, Trade, IT, Law, Youth, Education, Health and Heads of Government with representatives self-funding their participation.
