WISE Knowledge Sharing Events exclusively for WISE members
WISE Knowledge Sharing Events are hosted by WISE corporate members around the UK to share good practice and network with peers. A great opportunity to pick up ideas from other organisations working to get more girls and women in STEM, from classroom to boardroom.
Times of day vary but they typically run for 2-3 hours with presentations followed by Q&A and discussion. A representative from the WISE team will be on hand at each event to give an update on the campaign, answer questions and discuss ideas for future events and initiatives.
These events are free to all WISE members. Corporate members can send different people along so do spread the word to people based in different parts of the UK who may wish to attend events close to them. From 2016 we will make a small charge for non-members.
"The event was insightful, enjoyable and thought provoking with an excellent chair and panel and a high level of audience engagement. I am looking forward to the next event!" S.Barrow, BuroHappold Engineering
