WORKING women in Chinchilla are being encouraged to get together and network at the Professional Women's Network Chinchilla's (PWNC) first monthly mingle event.

A proud initiative of the Chinchilla Community Commerce and Industry (CCCI), the monthly mingle is being launched as a networking platform for women to get together and connect in an informal setting.

The networking event is aimed at women who are entering or returning to the workforce, work from home, volunteer or run their own business.

"It's the first time for this kind of event so this is our kick-off,” CCCI Manager Kimberley Lingard said.

"It's very informal; the whole idea is just to make connections... for women who are looking to further their careers with connections in the community and general information sharing.

"You can chat over wine and cheese and we're having it at the art gallery, which is a great opportunity to have a look at the current exhibition.”

Mrs Lingard said the CCCI identified a gap in the local area for opportunities for professional women to get together to meet, network and learn from one another.

"We're trying to find out what women want as well,” she said.

"It's a really great way to meet and learn more about PWNC and to become a member, which involves a monthly newsletter, monthly meeting and being invited to events.

"Hopefully it becomes a great platform for women to connect and absolutely we want it to be something that grows.”

The first monthly mingle event is on at Lapanyuh Art Gallery from 5pm until 7pm
