What we do
The Cityparents Group is an award-winning social enterprise. Founded in 2012 by Louisa Symington-Mills, The Cityparents Group provides support, information and advice to individuals and businesses across London (particularly the City) on topics including career progression, work/life balance, wellbeing at work, and creating flexible and inclusive workplaces. The Cityparents Group operates two professional networks, 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, this network was rebranded Cityparents to reflect our fully inclusive ethos and the diversity of our member base.
In 2017 we created Cityworks as a separate network 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
