On Women into Leadership Virtual 2021:

  • “Fantastic! I attended the 2018 London event and I was so excited to have been approved to attend again. My excitement was not misplaced! This was the pick me up that I needed so badly!”
    Defence Geographer, MOD
  • “It was my first WiL and I certainly hope not my last. I very much enjoyed the virtual experience and, although many people / presenters / speakers mentioned that they prefer ‘being in the room’ I felt it was somehow more intimate and closer by being virtual”
    P2P, DWP
  • “I would definitely recommend this experience to all within my department as I feel it offers a great deal of learning and reflection opportunities on your own role”
    Contact Centre Team Leader, HMPO

    PNCO Systems Security Manager, Home Office

    HR Policy Lead, CS Employee Policy
  • “The event has been one of the best days of development time I have given myself in a very long time. A valuable experience”
