NHS England women’s network invites you to join us for a development day full of inspirational speakers, workshops, interactive sessions plus a lunchtime marketplace. Our theme for the day is The Power and Potential of Change and there will be speakers telling their own personal stories including Dany Cotton, the first woman London Fire Commissioner opening the day and Kemi Adenubi Programme Director of the National Data Services Development (NDSD) programme at NHS Digital. We will also have a choice of development workshops, plus the chance to have a conversation with a panel of senior women from across the public sector and national trade unions about their own experiences of change and of course some time for you to reflect and build your networks.

These events are always oversubscribed and this will be our first one in London for some time so please register early to avoid disappointment - they are free to our women’s network members as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting you and your development.
