Wed 9

The Women’s Staff Network holds regular informal networking and discussion groups to allow members to meet, share ideas and experiences.

February’s discussion will focus on making a change in your life. The pandemic has forced many of us to reflect on our lives and what is most important to us. Many newspapers have reported on 'the great resignation' with many employees considering career changes.

But change could also be a new hobby, a new relationship or a new challenge.

Join us to discuss a change you would like to make in your life or to hear from others about what they are considering.
