Yorkshire & Humberside

Welcome to WISH Yorkshire & Humberside

I am delighted to welcome you to WISH Yorkshire & Humberside. Back in June 2015 Karen Temple (WISH Y & H Secretary) and I decided to set up the Yorkshire and Humber regional branch? and set about finding some likeminded ladies to join our Board. Michelle Gregg (Director of Housing for Yorkshire Housing) and Julie Wass (CIH Rising Star 2015) quickly joined us, closely followed by Caroline Chapman, our Events Coordinator and  then  our Treasurer Jacqui Dyer  We formally launched the new regional group on 10th November in the fabulous Nabarro offices in Sheffield’s South Quays!

I am delighted to be joined by such a diverse and accomplished group of women and I know our region will benefit from the breadth of knowledge and experience these women will bring to the new WISH group. We want our membership to represent all women in the Social Housing sector including accountants, lawyers, HR professionals, senior managers, communication and PR professionals, trainees, architects, surveyors and much more. Our vision is to build a strong mentoring programme where young women feel supported and encouraged, as well as a strong and effective networking opportunity for all.

We surveyed women from across our region to see what they wanted to see and learn about and we are now putting together an interesting and relevant programme of events and speakers for 2016 – more information will be posted on the WISH website  and our Twitter feed @wishYork_Humber where you can also get in touch with us.

We’d love to hear from you!
