Today, Moving Ahead works not just around the world but also across the spectrum of diversity, for more than 150 organisations including BT, Cisco, Google, Warner Music, Deloitte and Ricoh. We have supported more than 4,500 mentors and mentees. Women Ahead partners with the 30% Club, a CEO-led gender diversity campaign.

Wellbeing of Women champions women’s health by investing in pioneering research to find cures and treatments, transforming the lives of women and babies. Affiliated to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Wellbeing of Women is the only charity to fund research across the breadth of reproductive health, encompassing pregnancy and childbirth, gynaecological cancers and conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS, incontinence and menopause. Many routine treatments and tests used in everyday clinical practice has resulted from research led by Wellbeing of Women over the past 53 years. Just 2.48% of all publicly funded medical research in the UK is devoted to reproductive health and childbirth. With women accounting for 51% of the population, our work into this underfunded and overlooked area of health is therefore vital to discovering the next medical breakthrough that could improve and save the lives of women and babies in the UK and around the world.
