Our Mission

The Women of the Future Programme is a platform that unlocks a culture of kindness and collaboration among leaders. Our portfolio of events and projects support and celebrate the successes of women. Led by Pinky Lilani CBE DL we have built a remarkable, informal community of influential women determined not only to build professional and personal relationships with one another, but to be advocates for an exciting new generation of business leadership talent.


"Mishcon de Reya are pleased to be continuing our partnership and involvement with Women of the Future.

We look forward to working together this year on events and projects in the UK and internationally.”."

"These awards are so important to me because Cambodia hasn't been able to participate in anything regional and there seems to be a feeling that we can't. This awards means so much to me because it is a symbol; a symbol that as a country we can participate and be recognised in the region, and that people care what we think."
