International Women's Day 2018

Free Event • Registration Required

Warwick Business School along with the Warwick Women's Professional Network is planning an all day celebration of International Women's Day at The Shard in 2018.

This year, our theme focuses on strategies to support women (back) into management roles. We will look at how organisations can encourage workforce diversity, and how they can support re-entry back into the world of work for employees who have taken a career break.

The day will be split into four sessions; you are welcome to register for one, two or all four, depending on your areas of interest. If you intend to stay for more than one session, please ensure to select a ticket for each session from the options on our event page.

If you have any questions about the day, please feel free to email events@wbs.ac.uk.
