Back to your Future

Women Returners Conference, London, 14th November 2016


Join us for a day of inspiration, advice and support, specifically designed for women professionals returning to work after a long career break. Alongside workshops and speaker sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet informally with returner employers and a like-minded peer group. The Conference is hosted by the ICAEW, sponsored by Credit Suisse, Skanska, PwC, O2,  Fidelity International and The Cabinet Office, and supported by the 30% Club. The content will be relevant to you whether your background is finance, law, tech, engineering, marketing, retail or any other professional area, and whether your career break is 2, 5 or 15+ years.

What will you get out of the day?

“I urge women considering a return to work to take part in this event. Self-doubt and anxiety creep in for almost everyone who returns to work after a break. If you’re ready to resume your career, it may dawn on you how long it has been since you were in the workplace and a lot may have changed, not least your commitments in your home life. Meeting like-minded women, and the opportunity to develop the next steps of your career is an invaluable step towards addressing the gap on your CV and returning to work.” Sharron Gunn, ICAEW Executive Director
