WIG Leadership Impact Award 2019

 

About the Award: 


Developing leaders with insight and experience across the sectors is at the heart of WIG’s core purpose. We believe that enabling collaboration empowers innovation. That’s how we will all be flexible and successful during uncertain times. 

In 2017 we launched our first WIG Leadership Impact Award, recognising the impact of learning in a cross sector environment. This year we are inviting submissions from alumni of WIG leadership programmes as well as those who have benefited from a WIG talent offer such as a secondment or mentor (inc Charity Next).

Applicants should be able to demonstrate how learning in a WIG context has had a significant positive impact on their own leadership practice, their ability to lead teams and who have made a real difference within and beyond their organisations.

We would like to recognise the great work that WIG alumni do in the field of leadership and capture how that has been informed by cross-sector learning. We will be presenting the award at our Annual Reception on 7 March 2019.
