What we do
Cityparents Ltd is an award-winning social enterprise. Founded in 2012 by Louisa Symington-Mills, Cityparents Ltd provides support, information and advice to individuals and businesses across on topics including career progression, work/life balance, wellbeing at work, and creating flexible and inclusive workplaces. Cityparents Ltd operates two professional platforms: Cityworks and Cityparents.
The network originally known as Citymothers was founded by Louisa Symington-Mills in late 2012, with the aim of providing a relevant and convenient professional network for working mothers in London. In April 2014, Cityfathers was launched to provide a similar offering for working fathers. In November 2015, these networks were combined and rebranded as the Cityparents platform to reflect our fully inclusive ethos, the diversity of our member base and our wide-ranging offering. Cityparents now delivers a carefully curated programme of webinars/seminars, expert advice, online resources and mentoring scheme - all covering a range of relevant careers, wellbeing and parenting topics, aimed at helping individuals get ahead at work and at home.
In 2017 we created Cityworks as a separate platform aimed at creating flexible, diverse and inclusive workplaces. Cityworks is open to any professional with an active interest in diversity & inclusion, HR, wellbeing at work and/or culture change. It shares information and advice on market-leading policies and practices, and offer members access to expert-led events, professional networking opportunities, case studies, insights and online resources. Cityworks is run via its own website, www.cityworksforum.co.uk
