Inspiring Women for staff

Welcome to Inspiring Women Events, which are a series of occasional one-hour lunchtime talks by female speakers. These talks are then followed by interactive workshops to support your career development and/or networking. 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.
Staff events are open to all.

Next Inspiring Women for Staff Event

Wednesday 19 June 2024, 12-1pm, WMG Building, IMC Auditorium (next to the reception area on the ground floor).
Registered spaces for event are limited.
