WISE Conference 2018

Stimulate, Debate and Elevate

WISE Conference 2018

Our biggest ever WISE Conference will take place on
Wednesday 9 May 2018 at The Lowry, Salford Quays

Great Minds Don’t Think Alike! The Power of Women and Innovation

The UK government’s new Industrial Strategy makes a commitment to invest in science, research and innovation and to do more to commercialise the UK’s world leading science base to drive growth, especially in light of a new post-Brexit-Britain working environment.

In order to foster future innovation, we need fresh thinkers, new ideas and a paradigm shift to drive growth across the whole country. Women are integral as innovators and as members of creative teams to solve these challenges. The WISE Conference 2018 is a call to action to ensure women are part of the solution and to empower organisations to increase the number of women in positions requiring innovative thinking.
