WISH Midlands - Autumn Newsletter


Read the latest WISH Midlands newsletter here!

The WISH Midlands region has had a busy summer with its members, hosting two hugely successful events in Birmingham.

Its summer networking evening in August saw over 20 women gather to hear Jean Templeton from St Basils Housing share her journey to the top of a Housing business, which thoroughly inspired the audience and lead the WISH Midlands team to have conversations with many new people in the region.

Just last month Hayley Gillard hosted our ‘Confidence is Key’ workshop, and wowed the audience, with over 30 members and non-members from across the sector taking on board Hayley’s advice and guidance. Take a look at the ‘power pose’ photo!

WISH Midlands board members have also been busy with Housing Day, NHF Summit and Women in Housing events, flying the flag for women in the social housing sector across the midlands. Find out more about our new board members online.

Our next event is on 3rd December in Birmingham, with an enviable panel of guests taking shape! Booking will open shortly.
