WISH North East Launch - Tips from the Top

The WISH North East board members are delighted to invite you to our official launch event of the Women in Social Housing North East network.

Come along for a free breakfast and hear all about why we have set up this network, how you can get involved in what we are doing and hear some inspiring stories from 2 of the regions leading women in social housing, Angela Lockwood and Tina Drury.

There will be opportunities to network with other women in the sector and help us shape the focus of the WISH North East events and activities over the coming year.
