#Work Women Wisdom, based in WA, is hosting its sixth event on Thursday 17 September – Where to Now? Designing Your Future!

In the wake of Covid-19, working conditions have changed for most in the profession but for many women, especially those working part time, salaries have been reduced, hours cut, roles redefined, or positions lost completely. In collaboration with the WA chapter of the Institute, Suzanne Hunt and #Work Women Wisdom will host this timely event to discuss the opportunities for upskilling, registering and even … Starting a Practice!
