WIG membership gives you a trusted space to share, discuss and learn across sectors – helping you gain knowledge, work together on common challenges, and drive change.

Whether you’re a business, a public sector organisation, a charity or a university/institution, membership with WIG brings your organisation and your people a number of important benefits.

Being an active member of WIG can help you and your organisation to:

Stay up to date

Keep on top of the latest policy trends and hot topics – by attending briefings from senior leaders across the public and private sectors.

Think smart

Make the right decisions in times of uncertainty – by sharing challenges and gaining critical intelligence from across key pillars of UK society and the economy.


Solve issues by working closely with members – who include every central government department, leading FTSE companies, Russell Group universities and national charities.


Work together across sectors at multiple levels of seniority, including the very highest – building the peer-to-peer networks your decision-makers need.


Drive change in your organisation, by making the most of opportunities to develop your leaders and share skills – complementing how you develop talent within your teams. 

"WIG is a little like the UK's best concierge for live policy issues. The events are engaging and always useful. The topics and content help me keep up to date with policy and issues related to the UK and its engagement globally." - Bryan Taylor, University College London
