Our annual Women@Ciena networking lunch took place in central London at the beginning of May.  This was the second event of this kind that we have held, and once again it was a resounding success.


Hosted by Keri Gilder, we brought together a great group of female leaders from some of our largest customers and enabled them to grow their network, spark ideas and discuss ‘The Confidence Code’, our theme for the day.  Lively discussions focused on the impact of confidence in the working environment, the perceived confidence gap between men and women, and how we can address and nurture talent to close this gap effectively.


The open and collaborative atmosphere at the lunch provided a great opportunity for networking and a platform to nurture relationships with our customers.


“I really enjoyed the networking event yesterday…….I wish I could have stayed longer and spoken to more extremely interesting people.  It was by far the best event of its kind I’ve been to!!”
