Events: Dates to diarise

We have a full programme of events in place to support your return to work.

Where possible we will publish relevant resources from these events onto the website under Career Break and Getting Back to Work

We are also hoping to run the Returner Community events in locations outside London this year and we are introducing several webinars (full details will be published in due course). Please do let us know if there are any additional topics you would like us to address
