#NPWPODCAST RECORDING AT NORTHERN POWER FUTURES, NEWCASTLE!
Join us for a live recording of the Northern Power Women Podcast with a lively panel discussing 3 key topics.
Each month we will bring you no holds barred discussion on the biggest issues that affect our careers and lives. You’ll hear from an individual at the top of their game on the challenges they faced and the mistakes they made along the way.
And in Ask The Hive, if you are facing an obstacle or a problem in your career, you’ll have a chance to get some superb advice from people who’ve been there and come out the other side.
Northern Power Women is a campaign to accelerate gender equality from the North. We want to transform the culture of organisations to increase opportunities for women and showcase role models and best practice for organisations that are helping to drive and leading economic growth.
