The Number One Club (TNOC), is our women's network. Set up in 2008, TNOC has three objectives:
- Looking after number one - internal events (open to men and women) to promote development and wellbeing, connecting women in the firm and supporting the firm’s gender balance initiatives
- Plus one - external events for female clients, which are open to men and women from the firm
- Connecting as one - building relationships with women’s networks at client organisations and beyond, supporting contacts in establishing their own women’s networks.
We also host joint events with other women’s networks. For example, this year we teamed up with Schroders’ Network of Women for a couple of joint events, including a talk on women in boxing and a tour of our contemporary art collection.
TNOC provides support to other women’s networks and organisations that are looking to establish women’s networks.
TNOC is also a member of The Gender Network and a champion of the First 100 Years Project and we have hosted their Conference for three consecutive years, the fourth one being on 07 November 2018, again at our offices.
This year we celebrated our 10th anniversary of TNOC. To the mark this occasion we hosted a party on 26 September, joined by Victoria Coren Mitchell who entertained us with her thoughts on women’s networks and the important role that they play.
Emma Sutcliffe (Litigation partner) and Ania Rontaler (Corporate partner) are the current co-chairs of TNOC.
