I LIKE NETWORKING was set up in June 2020, after founder Isabel Sachs lost her job as a result of Covid-19. The pilot programme amassed 37 key industry leaders from institutions including Tate, Google, Gal-Dem and beyond, attracting over 420 applicants – over 50% of which were BAME – and landing a feature in The New York Times. I LIKE NETWORKING has mentored 70 people and delivered events for over 1,200 attendees. Since June 2020, it’s created an online community of over 10,000 people, all supporting the inclusion and career progression of women and non-binary people.
