The AGM was attended by 18 senior professional women representing 12 different women’s networks from cities across Europe including London (both CWN and EPWN London) Paris, Lyon, Nice, Brussels, Madrid, Barcelona, Vienna, Copenhagen, Oslo, and Amsterdam. There were also representatives from Athens and Frankfurt where new networks are being set up.

In addition to the formal AGM, the main topics and priorities were decided for the coming year. They include the third bi-annual study (performed by Mercer) of the representation of women on boards in European Top 50 companies; a programme to attract senior business women and give opportunities to connect them with peers Europe wide; an expansion of the Network’s proprietary collaborative networking platform; along with continuing engagement on the EU Commission’s Network for Women in Decision making in Politics and Economy. Finally, many of the city networks operate highly-sought after mentoring programmes.  

The event was hosted by the Nice - Côte d'Azur branch of European Professional Women's Network at the headquarters of TEAM Côte d'Azur, which promotes inward investment to Nice and the Alpes Maritime region.
