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. We provide an unrivalled range of opportunities to bring business, government and the not-for-profit sector closer together.
WIG is also a membership body with over 230 member organisations (central and local government, FTSE companies, regulators, charities, universities and institutes). We help our members connect and understand how other organisations think, while broadening their networks through our programme of events. We develop leaders in a cross-sector environment with our seminars and leadership development programmes. We were set up in 1984 up as a secondment scheme (a Cabinet Office initiative) to give civil servants real insight into industry and we continue to provide opportunities to taste life in another sector today, with secondments, Trustee and NED placements, mentoring and coaching.
