"Can you run more of these WINS Network events in London please? I find them incredibly helpful & I love how you bring together such a cross-section of amazing women who are creating change!"

WINS London draws in many talented women from the widest variety of sectors, businesses and organisations.  Kindly supported by many organisations, this allows WINS London to offer events at different locations across the city.

WINS London events are very popular, so book on early and make the most of the Early Bird tickets!

We’re now delighted to have Dr Victoria Hands pick up leading our WINS Hub in London.

Victoria is currently organising our 2020 programme and if your organisation can help in any way, such as host or sponsor an event, do get in touch.

We look forward to listing all our forthcoming events here soon.
