What We Do

Each Region holds events for members at least four times a year. Our events give members and Friends an opportunity to network in a friendly and relaxed environment. We currently organise 2 types of event. Those with inspirational speakers to talk to us on a wide range of topics and those focused purely on an evening of networking and chat.

WISH is a fun networking community of encouragement and support for every woman, just like you. Championing positive and beneficial outcomes for all, regardless of your role or experience within the UK housing sector.  

 

You can join as an individual or as a Corporate member through your Organisation. Click here to find out more.

 

WISH CIC is managed by a Main Board of Directors and organised on a day to day basis by a paid team – our wonderful WISH Central Services!

 

Each Region is run by a volunteer Board who works to support you, our member. By providing an engaging calendar of informative, inspirational and entertaining events. 

 

When you join our community, you will enjoy networking at core national events and a minimum of 4  events a year put on by your local region, on topics ranging from: confidence building, influencing, public speaking, social media tips, enlightening talks on relevant current issues, as well as personal tales of how speakers built their careers in the affordable housing and construction sectors. 

 

Now with 10 regions across the UK and over 500 subscribed members, you can engage and connect with other women in your local area. Meeting socially with your chosen region gives you as our member, a chance to network freely in a friendly, safe and relaxed atmosphere. Our events offer our members the opportunity to build new, meaningful relationships, share experiences and gain new perspectives.  

 

Our events support our overall mission to promote the benefits of being part of a networking community and to boosting one another to thrive, develop and grow in the UK housing sector. 

To invigorate the senses at our motivational events we’re always delighted to invite insightful leaders and inspirational speakers, to talk and chat to you about topical concepts and ideas that matter.

 

As a Community Interest Company (CIC) we want to leave a legacy we can all be proud of. We actively encourage our members to attend school career fairs during the year, giving us the ability to highlight to young women the variety of great career choices within the industry at a key decision stage for them.

We also like to visit schools to encourage new talent into the industry and to showcase the wide array of opportunities within the sector.
