MOPAC Women's Network

The MOPAC Women’s Network was launched in September 2018, and is a grass roots collaboration of colleagues across the organisation working together to maximise the role of women, and support gender equality in the organisation and beyond.

The mission statement for the network is to:

To galvanise, inspire and empower MOPAC women to achieve their full potential and ambitions in the organisation and beyond, enabling new and innovative approaches to improving gender equality in MOPAC; and promoting and supporting efforts towards gender equality across the capital”.

Membership of the network is open to women and male allies across MOPAC, and includes colleagues from across departments and pay grades. The MOPAC Women’s network also works in partnership with Women’s networks across the Mayoral family including the TfL female staff support network, and the Network of Women in the Metropolitan Police.
