Better business, better government, better society

No single organisation has all the answers to society's biggest challenges. As a charity, we create the platform for our members to learn, share and collaborate across sectors. We help leaders access new skills and critical insights so they can think differently and lead effectively.

What our members say

"WIG curates a really important space between the private sector and government; it convenes around topics of real common interest. What comes out of that dialogue is very rich and benefits everybody."

Rupert McNeil

Chief People Officer for the Civil Service

"For me, WIG provides a powerful platform for exchange of ideas and perspectives between the public and private sectors, in an equal and honest forum that gives all parties the chance to learn from each other. For Mace that gives us real insight into public sector challenges and changes in direction, helping us to provide a better service to our public sector clients."

Caroline Lassen

Director - Government and Housing at Mace

"WIG's Women’s Leadership Programme has intrinsically shifted my internal dialogue and mind-set. In that sense it has been transformational and really helped me to make conscious decisions as a senior BAME woman."

Jaspal Roopra

Deputy Director HR at Department for BEIS

"I am truly grateful to WIG for supporting me so well and making this secondment to Oxfam happen. I have gone from doing justice in one sector of life to doing justice in another."
