Northern Ireland's largest and fastest growing business network for female entrepreneurs and business leaders, Women in Business, is delighted to announce its key partnership with Allstate Northern Ireland, one of the largest employers of tech talent in the country.

John Healy and Roseanne Kelly announces partnership between Allstate NI and Women in Business.

Through the new partnership, Women in Business and Allstate NI are excited to not only promote equality of opportunity, but they are committed to working in collaboration to support and grow a diverse new economy based on maximising all potential, regardless of gender, through inclusive growth.

This new partnership will continue to harness the energy and passion of both organisations to make a difference in Northern Ireland.

Roseann Kelly, Chief Executive of Women in Business NI is excited about the new partnership and the impact it can make,

"Allstate is a global progressive organisation that recognises the importance of a diverse and inclusive workforce. The organisation has taken a proactive role in supporting Women in Business, through its involvement in our events and programmes and we are delighted they are taking this one step further and coming on board as our key partner for the next three years. Their expertise will be vital to our vision 'To be an internationally recognised business network driving equality, inclusion and economic growth'"

Commenting on the new partnership, Allstate NI's managing director John Healy said;

"Allstate have worked with Women in Business for many years and we recognised the synergies between the two organisations; the core values of diversity, equality and inclusivity mirror those of Allstate. We look forward to working closely with Women in Business to grow the opportunities for female entrepreneurs and business leaders in Northern Ireland."
