WiPSA Events

WiPSA events take the form of an individual presentation or panel presentation on a particular topic relevant to people working in the social and development sectors.

The presentations normally run from 9-11am with the opportunity for networking before and after the talk. Under normal circumstances, the events are usually held in a variety of venues with the focus on choosing a central venue for most with easy parking. During the Covid-19 pandemic, however, these events will take the form of online webinars.

This event will look at

  • How can they successfully adapt to these changes and be more flexible and innovative in their strategic leadership
  • How can they care for themselves in order to sustain themselves?
