INVITATION
WiS CHRISTMAS LUNCH
WELLINGTON

WiS is delighted to invite you to join us in celebrating the end of this extraordinary year as we hear from Jo Cribb, co-author of “Take your Space”. 

Rather than languishing over the lack of gender equality, Jo and her co-author Rachel have taken matters into their own hands in collecting and sharing their stories, through their newly launched book of New Zealand women who are succeeding on their own terms. Describing themselves as our “cheerleaders” we look forward to the sharing of practical steps and life and career hacks that these women have taken, that have worked!

“A celebration of successful women leaders in all their glorious diversity” – what better way to draw our year to an end.
