Interested in flexible working, but worried about career progression? Join the IDEA community for how it could work for you

Join the IDEA community to discuss flexible working and how one woman has been successful in having the right work life balance.

Sarah Haywood is the managing director for Advanced Oxford, a not-for-profit membership group which brings together companies, institutions and organisations which all have a focus on innovation and knowledge-related business, in Oxfordshire. Sarah has had various senior roles in the NHS, MedCity and BEIS over the past 20 years, all while working flexibly. She also ran the team within BEIS that designed and legislated the shared parental leave system and the right to request flexible working systems.

Sarah will share her story and offer suggestions based on her experiences for working flexibly. Come with questions and ideas to share with the group.
