WRA set to celebrate first birthday with milestone event for members

The Women’s Recycling Alliance (WRA) was founded by Clearpoint Recycling’s development director Sarah Sanpher-McDowell last year, and what a jam-packed twelve months it’s been!

Set up with the aim of bringing women together from across the waste and recycling industry, it formed a network in which they can develop relationships with like-minded women, evolve their confidence and discuss the challenges and topics facing women in the sector.

To mark the first anniversary of the WRA’s existence, we’re holding a birthday event on 16 October 2019 at the Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Warwickshire between 9am – 3:30pm. And we’re extremely excited to celebrate with our members!

All of our WRA events feature leadership workshops tailored to women in the sector – and this one is no different!

For those not already aware, another strand to what the WRA is all about is empowerment. The network exists to provide a platform for professional and personal development – facilitating members to reach their potential.

That’s why as well as networking and a three-course buffet lunch, leading UK coach Jules Wyman will be delivering an inspiring workshop at the event, centred on ‘The Imposter Syndrome: What to do when you feel like a fraud.

Commenting on the upcoming session, WRA founder Sarah said: “If you’re plagued by self-doubt and shy away from challenges because you feel you’re not capable enough or maybe you put your achievements down to ‘luck’ or a ‘fluke’, there’s every chance you’re suffering from imposter syndrome and this workshop will help.”

The WRA is on a mission to further increase its profile and become the networking hub for all women throughout the waste and recycling industry.
