Join us for the March 2016 WISE series - LET'S GET IN-FORMATION
Our eminent speakers and moderator, who will facilitate a lively discussion, will discuss their professional experience and achievements, how they created opportunities within a male-dominated field, and insights on building a strong and supportive network for women in the industry.
