WYP is proud to announce the return of our Women in Business series, and we have an incredible panel lined up just for you! We've just updated the location (again, we know!) to the much more spacious Level 9 at 10 Customhouse Quay - big thanks to KPMG for hosting us! This means free drinks are on us!
As diversity and inclusion is becoming an increasingly discussed matter, it’s become critical to recognise the importance of women as business leaders and the shared responsibility of men and women in leading the change.
Register your interest if this sounds like a bit of you!
This event brings together a fantastic panel of female leaders from diverse backgrounds, and they will share their stories, unique challenges experienced during their careers. This session also includes the opportunity for Q&A and networking, food (as usual) and a few free wines and beers for our members!
Join us on Wednesday the 22nd of August from 5:30pm for the discussion, and our usual networking, platters and drinks!
