Working parents networking lunch
Join us for our first event on 6th November from 12-1.30pm for informal networking and to discuss what you’d like to see from your new professional networking group.
The pro-parents network is designed to offer support and networking for professional parents in and around Manchester. This is for you if you are a working parent/caregiver, a future parent, or are taking a career break. We are a supportive, open and friendly group who understands the daily “juggle” of career / work, and the balance with home and family life.
The popularity and growth of the Women Lawyers & Mothers Group has inspired Emma and Hannah to create the pro-parents group for professional working parents in Manchester due to the demand from those outside of the legal profession and from dads! Our aim is to create a place of openness, genuine support and networking for anyone finding that delicate balance between career and parenthood.
