Event description

Description

Join us for another insightful event, take part in the discussion and get inspired.

What an inspiring launch event for WINS Edinburgh in September - everyone rated it Excellent or Very good and that they would recommend it to colleagues and friends.

For our second event, we're talking about inspiring people and organisations of all kinds to shift their perspective to see the value in sustainability and explore how we can change "the way we do things round here" to ways that are more positive for the environment, social impacts and wellbeing. How can you inspire organisations to adopt a mindset for creating prosperity that is good for people and the planet as well as finances, rather than a focus on profits?

The format for the evening is a panel discussion followed by group discussions where you can explore ways you could do things in your own organisation, or inspire some changes based on the ideas in the panel discussion and from each other.

Expect a similar atmosphere to our launch event, with great energy and interesting and lively conversatons with a wide cross section of women from different sectors who have similar passions about sustainability. Expect more of the same approach where we dig deep into ideas and topics that matter to us and get you connecting and working together. This will be a highly engaging session that you simply can't afford to miss!
