The Midlands Women in Social Housing (WISH) group has announced that its next event – the first since its official launch in September – will focus on boosting the number of women in leadership roles
The interactive session aims to nurture the talent that exists in a sector where women currently make up less than 40% of housing’s leadership positions.
The event, which is open to all women at any stage of their career in housing, works to close this gap through personal development and networking. There will also be an open forum on what a mentoring programme for the Midlands would look like.
Rebecca Clarke, regional manager at the Chartered Institute of Housing and chair of the Midlands Women in Social Housing board, said: “Through mentoring and peer support we can help to build a strong female workforce that will drive the sector forward and help to meet the challenges it is facing head on.
“We want to give women the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and find out more about a potential mentoring programme. If you want to get the best out of your personal self and others this is a must attend event.”
You can get involved on 9 November 2017 at Mazars LLP, Birmingham or sign up for the event on Eventbrite.
Women in Social Housing is a national group with regional boards across the country with the aim of giving members opportunities to network and meet with peers across a range of organisations-both private and public.
