About us

In complex and challenging times, we provide an unrivalled range of opportunities to bring business, government and the not-for-profit sector closer together, to learn from each other and co-create solutions.

We don't believe in insularity, which is why we help our members understand how other organisations think. We develop their leaders together, help them input to policy, broaden their networks and learn from each other.

We do this by providing our members with career opportunities, leadership and development programmes, events and networking. 

WIG is a charity, independent and neutral. Established in 1984, our charitable purpose is to build understanding and co-operation between the sectors for the greater public good – a nation better governed, business better informed and society better served. Find out what we can do for you.
