The Women in Public Sector Summit (WiPS), was first held in Wellington in April 2016 and continues to be in high demand with a long waitlist of women wanting to attend. Following the success of the events in Wellington and Auckland during 2017, the decision has been made to repeat the Summit again in 2018.

The Summit is organised by the public sector for the public sector and encourages participation by women who are:

  • ready for their first people or thought leader role
  • looking for career progression in the public sector
  • a champion of, or in a business role supporting, diversity and inclusion in the public sector
  • experiencing barriers to their progression in the public sector

The Summit will be hosted in Wellington on 2 May 2018 (see information below), followed by Auckland on 16 October 2018.  Save these dates in your calendar now!
