About the Event

WiT23 - Finding your groove

Have you lost your energy and zing? Do you need help with the next step in your career? Fancy a change of direction? Need some inspiration from peers? Want to share your enthusiasm with colleagues?

Our theme for the conference will focus on the many and varied paths taken in the quest for career fulfilment and personal success.
  • how people find their way into the sector and move around it;
  • how best to access early career support;
  • the challenges of moving up into leadership roles
  • holy grail of a good work-life balance at every stage of your career. 

We will explore how best to navigate these well-trodden paths and find your own groove, along with exploring how best to navigate the professional paths open to you and consider opportunities you may not have previously noticed.

You’ll hear inspirational stories; useful ideas and takeaways to help you create a more positive, inclusive and productive workplace and most importantly have an opportunity to build your own network of like-minded, passionate, talented WiT colleagues.

Sharing your ideas and experiences is a valuable addition to our conference programme, enabling peers facing similar challenges or looking to effect changes you have already made, to learn from your experiences. If you or a colleague from across the sector would be interested in presenting a 20 to 30-minute breakout session or presentation, reflecting on experiences and challenges faced within your careers to date please complete our short online form.
