About The Ladies Networking Circle
NETWORKING | EVENTS | COMMUNITY
ZURICH | ZUG | LUZERN | SWITZERLAND
We all love the mountains but agree that the place can get a bit sleepy, so let’s get together, grow the circle and get our little villages rocking, shall we?
Whether you are new in town, job hunting, launching a new biz or simply looking to expand your network for professional advancement or to meet new amazing ladies – this is the place to be!
Our group of more than 1,700 members enjoys exchanging and having a great time but also and most importantly we are about realising what we can accomplish together when we join hands, lift each other and start with taking that small step towards a big project!
We meet regularly in Zürich, Zug and Luzern and have a Facebook platform where everyone is welcome to introduce themselves, what they do and how the group can support them!
**Note that our community is opened to all and there are no membership fees or requirements!

Our goal is to learn and facilitate empowering each other
I’m a girl on a mission to empower women and seeing our community grow, I felt there was much more we could do to support and empower each other.
My goal is to provide a community fostering support, mentorship and creating opportunities for members to also launch their own initiatives and make use of the platform for the support they need. Therefore, I encourage all members to bring their ideas on board, ask on the group for the help they need and get together to make their projects come true – and we’ll be here to support, help you get visibility, answer your questions and give you guidance!
I particularly love win-win projects where everyone benefits. Below are example of projects organised.
Women Empowering Women – Networking & Fundraiser Event
We’ve hosted the Women Empowering Women Networking & Fundraising event in March 2019 to financially support 3 amazing ladies to make their big dreams come true.
This event and collaboration allowed us to achieve 4 things in one go:
- Raise over CHF 7,500 in sponsorships and donations
- Give visibility to local women-led businesses who sponsored the event by acknowledging their contributions through the platforms and the event
- Further expand our collaboration with Superwomen in Switzerland and add a new partner: Mamagora
- Host a fabulous networking evening that everyone enjoyed!

Women Empowering Women – LeanIn Circle
What’s a LeanIn Circle?
LeanIn is a movement that was started following the publication of Sheryl Sandberg’s popular book by the same name. In short, the book is about gender differences in the workplace and how the author encourages women to “LeanIn” at work and take their place.
There are now over 40,000 LeanIn groups worldwide through which women get together and support each other towards empowerment. The movement has mostly been popularised in the corporate world but it is slowly expanding to other groups such as women entrepreneurs, women returners, etc.
Our LeanIn Circle – Women Empowering Women
I found this to be an important area of opportunity – which happens to also be aligned with my aim for the Ladies Networking Circle group – that is to create bridges BETWEEN women of the various groups (e.g. professionals from the corporate world / entrepreneurs and freelancers / moms-at-home / job hunters & returners) and fostering mentorship and support between women of various groups or in other words – helping Women Empower Women!
For example, how can women who are employed better support other women who are job searching or aiming to return to work after a career break and how can they find each other? Similarly, we all know that women entrepreneurs need support to get their businesses off the ground – but as non-entrepreneurs, do we understand how we can support them doing so?
To achieve this, the group aims to organise various activities, starting with round tables to better understand the needs of each group and support the development and awareness as to how we can better support each other and create the opportunities to do so.
Our LeanInCircle is a working group where members are committed to join our monthly meetings, brainstorm on how to achieve our goals and get involved in organising the various activities.
