About us

Louisa Symington-Mills founded Citymothers in late 2012, with the aim of providing a networking forum for working mothers. In April 2014, Cityfathers was launched to provide a similar offering for working fathers. In November 2015, the website was rebranded Cityparents to reflect our fully inclusive ethos and the diversity of our member base. 

Today, we are a friendly, dynamic and award-winning network for all City professionals - not just parents. Our current membership base includes over 12,000+ legal, finance and accountancy professionals - who want a progressive City career appropriately balanced with home commitments and responsibilities. 

We organise regular events in the City of London and Canary Wharf at convenient times - typically lunchtime - for members to network and hear relevant, high quality content, in a fun and encouraging environment.

Managing a tough City job alongside home/family responsibilities creates numerous challenges: the Cityparents team all have City backgrounds and understand these issues, and through a busy schedule of Cityparents and Citycareers events are able to offer members access to practical resources, inspiration and motivation, and peer support.
