    I’m a bit skeptical of women’s networking events. Partly for the reasons you refer to (ie, they’re often just marketing opportunities) but also for ideological reasons. I would rather participate in non-gender specific networks relevant to my industry and interests.

    I’m in favour of promoting women’s interests (and raising awareness where things are lacking), but in many cases I think we achieve more when we just get down to using our talents and hard work to actually do our jobs, rather than sitting around analysing the situation. I know I’m not the only professional woman who feels this way.

      Sheeple, yes and I also do feel that men have drawn the short straw on this one. There are so many dynamic women-focused networks that men don’t seem to have the same kind of opportunity. Having said that, I do know that most of the women’s networks mentioned do welcome men as members.
