Ascent proud to sponsor #DWN23

As a proud Silver sponsor of the Defence Women’s Network (DWN) Conference 2023, we were delighted to showcase Ascent at this highly successful event.

The theme of this second national conference was leadership and self-empowerment – building on the Network’s aim of encouraging discussion and exploration of gender and equality issues.

Hands on advice and coaching on how to develop careers was boosted by talks from inspirational women and men from across the Civil Service and Defence industry, on subjects ranging from managing the challenges of modern leadership, to how to say ‘no’.

Ascent brought along an enthusiastic team of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging nominees and Ascent ambassadors to the London event, who engaged with delegates about the work we do at Ascent.

“My personal highlights were connecting with some amazing, talented colleagues from our sites who I don’t get to see so regularly, but also meeting new, likeminded individuals from across the wider defence enterprise,” said Ascent People Partner, Chloe Boardman.

“It was also great to catch up with colleagues from our shareholder, Lockheed Martin. The panel sessions and guest speakers were just incredible!”
