Event description


How To Have a Powerful Voice

Women in Sustainability (WINS) exists to help women flourish in careers that are building a sustainable world. This event will focus on both progressing and being heard in organisational environments which are not necessarily women friendly. This will be a friendly, informal and highly interactive session in which our speakers will facilitate conversations about the challenges and opportunities we face, and share their wealth of experience.

The speakers are highly influential and impactful women, who'll be sharing their insights and tips on what you should be thinking about, and practising, in order to have a powerful voice.

Adding to the mix the usual 'Women in Sustainability' approach of getting you connecting and working together, this will be a highly engaging session that you simply can't afford to miss!

In addition, this event will be an opportunity to meet Lola Okunrinboye, the new Aberdeen Hub Lead; and for Lola to get to know you. Lola is really keen to hear what you are looking for from the Hub and how we can develop it together over the coming months.

The Women in Sustainability Network is already established with Network Hubs in London, Oxford, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow. WINS Aberdeen will be our Second Hub in Scotland and we are very excited to launch in a city with an appetite for a learning community that supports female change makers to flourish in their careers and businesses.

As ever there will be the space and opportunity to network and share experiences with colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there!

She worked in Education for over 20 years and enjoys using practical activities to help people learn in a fun and engaging way.
