Members of CYGNA are invited to join an event hosted at ESCP's London Campus on 26th May.  

The name CYGNA derives from the female version of the Latin word for SWAN (Supporting Women in Academia Network). The main objective of the group is to promote interaction among female academics based in the London area, and to provide a forum for learning, support, and networking. Although most of CYGNA's members work in business and management, they welcome participants from neighbouring disciplines.
