As part of the Women's Commissioning Support Unit activities in the West Midlands, WRC have organised a roundtable on the question, 'How can women's organisations in the West Midlands be a stronger voice for the sector?'

Come and discuss the challenges that women's organisations face in the West Midlands and collaborate to develop practical solutions. How can we develop a more sustainable women's sector that can advocate for women both within the region and nationally?

Bring your own questions and pose them to WRC, or to other women's organisations - we want the title question to be a prompt only.

We're particularly keen to hear from small women's organisations, including those led by and for BME women.

Please register to let us know you're coming, as the capacity of the venue is limited.

 

About the Women's Commissioning Support Unit (WCSU) and the Women's Resource Centre (WRC)

WRC, as the umbrella body, is committed to having a thriving women’s sector that is able to deliver services to reduce gender inequalities, which in the current economic climate are growing. The women’s sector has a vital role to play in public service delivery, but the size and complexity of the competitive procurement processes and increasingly demanding contracts makes it difficult for smaller organisations to compete on their own.

As a result the Women’s Commissioning Support Unit (WCSU), led by Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) will work with partners in four specified locations to help local organisations enhance their ability to shape this agenda and develop specialist women consortium.
