Women in Toys introduces free online networking session

Published on: 2nd June 2020

The Tea and Biscuits session launches this Friday in conjunction with ToyAid.

The UK chapter of Women in Toys will host a virtual Tea and Biscuits meeting this Friday morning to enable members and non-members to come together to network, socialise and chat with others in the industry.

Although the lockdown in the UK has begun to ease this week, many are still working from home or remotely. Recognising that this can be a lonely environment for those used to working in busy offices, Women in Toys decided to bring the industry together for a virtual meet-up from 11am – 12pm via Zoom.

Everybody is welcome and the subject of chat will range from business to home schooling to missing the pub on a Friday night. Attendees will also learn about ToyAid, the new charity which supports families and children of front-line workers.

The free event is open to WiT members and non-members, so readers can invite their colleagues and industry friends.

Trudi Bishop, co-chair of the UK Chapter of Women in Toys, commented: “It’s been far too long since we all had a good old industry catch-up, so we have created a virtual space where everyone can check-in and feel part of our fabulous industry again until such a time when we can all get together again.”
