Women Returners Back to Your Future Conference

Return to work with confidence, and a plan!

If you would love to return to work after a long career break, then the Women Returners Back to Your Future Conference is just what you need. Aimed at returning women professionals, the Conference is packed full of advice, inspiration, tools and connections to get you back to a rewarding role!

The virtual format of the Conference makes it accessible from wherever you are located, and it fits around a school run, if you have one. The event is being held on 1-2 May 2024 and ticket holders can recap and catch up on speaker, panel and main stage workshop sessions for 30 days after the event. There is also an option to meet for a follow-on in-person networking event in London afterwards (currently full, but a waitlist is available).
“I now feel inspired and encouraged to start on my return to work journey!” “It has been really brilliant. I have been looking so hard for this kind of support.” – 2023 Attendees
