Networking events are a prominent feature of the HSJ Women Leaders Network - we profile key speakers that are engaging, motivating and inspirational.
We also like to include an interactive workshop segment to our events which allows the members to have a participatory role and learn techniques that they can take back to the workplace.
We aim to be inclusive by taking our events to different regions across the country - as we know our members represent a good geographical spread.
