Event for women in social housing a success

Published: 23rd September 2019

More than 100 women, including representatives from Saffron, attended the first ever event for WISH East (the network for women in social housing).

On Thursday 19 September, women from across the UK housing sector heard from inspirational speakers, including our Executive Director of Operations Hannah Harvey. There were also opportunities to network and discuss current topics of interest.

The WISH East network is the most recent of 10 regional hubs to launch across the UK completing the network for talented, innovative and professional women.

Saffron was one of the key sponsors of the event, along with Greenacre Recruitment, MCP and Rentplus, bringing women together from across a large geographical area to celebrate achievements and create excellent networking opportunities for rising stars and established professionals.

WISH is a national organisation founded in 1998. It is the only membership-based network for women from all disciplines across UK housing aiming to challenge stereotypes and help remove barriers for women working in both the public and the private sectors.
