Bright Network Women in Leadership: London is an exclusive event designed to celebrate, encourage and inspire our female Bright Network members and help them discover opportunities at world leading firms.
You'll hear from inspirational women who have overcome career challenges, implemented change and assumed key positions of leadership. They will be on hand to give you their insights to support your early career and discover how you can be a part of the future change in sought-after sectors. Not only will you build your professional network by meeting representatives and senior leaders from our partner firms, but you’ll also meet other likeminded members to share the experience with.
To get a taste of how much the day can offer you, here are the highlights from last year’s event.
