About Us

Since 2011, Women in Defence UK has made a concentrated effort to make defence a better place.

Started as a LinkedIn group by our Founder Angela Owen OBE, we have grown into one of the largest independent communities of individuals and organisations that celebrates and recognises the achievements of those working in the defence of our nation.

Our not for profit organisation is inspired, everyday, by Emmeline Pankhurst’s Deeds not Words. Everything we do has our community and the improvement of the defence enterprise at its core. Through inspiring, challenging and developing we put our words into actions.

We challenge ideas through our events. Run for women by women our events include masterclasses, fireside chats, networking, conferences and workshops. 

​We develop our community by providing mentoring, role models and our newly launched Careers Page. We want to provide you with the tools to succeed.

​We inspire through our annual awards and showcasing achievements. Probably what we are best known for, our spectacular awards are back for 2022 and we will be launching the shortlist in September!
