Women Leaders' Network

Career transitions: changing the mix

 Chaired by: Pat Armstrong, Chief Executive, ACOSVO

Speakers: Julie Hutchison, Charities Specialist, Aberdeen Standard Capital & Catherine Stihler, Chief Executive, Open Knowledge Foundation


This event and networking lunch continues to build on the ACOSVO Women Leaders' Network, a peer support network for women Chief Officers in Scottish voluntary organisations.



Why wait until retirement to really change the mix in what you do?  What options might open up to you by asking different questions of yourself today?  Join us for this discussion lunch where we hear from two speakers who have each made their own transition to change the mix in their lives.  



Our first speaker is Julie Hutchison, whose decision in her 40s to reduce her hours with her main employer (Aberdeen Standard Capital) has opened the way to a totally new mixture of activities, involving university lecturing, launching an online training course, various activities connected to charity governance, and outdoor swimming! 



Our second speaker is Catherine Stihler who left the European Parliament after 20 years to run a global not for profit, Open Knowledge Foundation, whose work includes data literacy training, providing tools to empower individuals,communities,civil society and researchers to effectively use open data and to campaign for a fair, free and open world. 



Please join us for lunch and to meet other women Chief Officers for informal networking and peer support.
