Stimulate, Debate and Elevate
Releasing the Power of Women and Innovation
Save the Date!
Our biggest ever WISE conference will take place on Wednesday 9 May 2018 at The Lowry The Quays, Salford.
The 2018 WISE conference will focus on empowering organisations to increase the number of women in positions requiring innovative thinking. The UK Industrial Strategy has made a commitment to invest in science, research and innovation and to do more to commercialise the UK’s world leading science base to drive growth, especially in light of a new post-Brexit Britain working environment.
In order to foster future innovation we need fresh thinkers, new ideas and a paradigm shift to drive growth across the whole country. Women are integral as innovators and as members of creative teams to solve these challenges. This is a call to action to ensure women are part of the solution.
Key themes for the day will be:
1. Unlocking the creative power of diverse teams
2. Entrepren-her- ship – supporting female entrepreneurs of the future
3. Patently biased?
4. Innovation to support flexible working
Roundtable Discussion – WISE Ten Steps to Foster Women's Innovation
