Women’s corporate networks might have started decades ago when there was a greater need for solidarity and support, but these days many of the groups still hold strong — despite greater numbers of women in the workforce and in leadership roles.

Maybe that’s because of their impact on the bottom line: Women’s internal networks (WINs) increase interaction among female employees, creating synergies that can play an instrumental role in advancing business objectives, according to a survey and roundtable discussion by the Financial Women’s Association (FWA) in New York.
