Inspiring Women for staff

Welcome to the new look Inspiring Women Events, which are a series of occasional one-hour lunchtime talks by female speakers and is sponsored by Warwick's Provost,Chris Ennew. These talks are then followed by interactive workshops to support your career development. The initiative was established in order to encourage and inspire female staff at Warwick, to learn from other women, share their own experiences and to meet with colleagues they may not otherwise encounter on campus.
