We are a charity with a purpose 

At The Whitehall & Industry Group (WIG), we believe society works better when people in business, government and the not-for-profit sectors can learn from each other and collaborate, for the greater good. 

As an independent, non-lobbying charity, we make that happen. We encourage people across these sectors – and sometimes from different parts of the same sector – to come together and develop mutual co-operation, understanding and learning.

We've been devoted to cross-sector learning for nearly 40 years and are governed by our trustees, supported by our expert patrons, and run by a passionate team.

What we do

To help encourage open-minded conversations across sectors, we find creative ways to bring people together. These include: 

  • Our rich and busy events programme – which includes more than 130 briefings per year on key themes from senior thought leaders in all sectors. 
  • A suite of cross-sector leadership programmes for all career levels – which help leaders and future leaders to learn actively from peers across different sectors. 
  • Opportunities for people to experience life in another sector, via our services which include non-executive and trustee recruitmentsecondments and mentoring.
