Description

Following Your Passion: Creating a Values Based Career with Purpose

Creating a career whilst staying true to your passion and values is not always easy and yet many of us are driven by our values and a common purpose to create sustainable future.

Our inspiring speakers will share their lived experiences of researching and supporting women in the work place and what has driven and shaped their careers, we will then invite a wider discussion with the group.

As ever there will be time and space to reflect and think about how this might shape our own approach to work and career.
