For the second time, Women Who Get Shit Done is coming to Wellington! We’re inviting women from all walks of life to come together, to share stories, experiences, expertise, and, well... whatever is on your mind and in your heart. 

 What:  Women Who Get Shit Done - An Unconference

You can arrive any time from 2pm on the Friday.

Where:  Tatum Park (40 minutes from Wellington). If you want to know about the Accessibility of the venue (and transport to get there), please read here:

Cost:  $375pp including accommodation and meals. (We will make scholarships available to at least 20% of attendees, so please don't let cost deter you from registering your interest! We'll make it happen.)

Contact:  Register your interest using the form below. Get in touch on if you have any questions.


How does an unconference work?

An unconference will look and feel different to most events you have been to before, but everyone there will have one thing in common - a commitment to getting shit done.

Together we’ll set the agenda on the first night, and work our way through an inspiring weekend of connections, conversations, and shared learning. Read more here.

Who is it for?

It's for you! This event will bring together a group of 100+ diverse women from all walks of life to ensure strong connections are made during the weekend. It'll be an action-packed weekend, but we try to leave enough time to explore a range of topics and gain traction on areas of shared interests.

Meet the Wellington-based team helping make this event happen here.


We're heading back to Tatum Park, just outside of Levin.   

To keep costs affordable, the majority of the accommodation will be shared. There are limited single rooms available by special request, with a priority for those who require single rooms for medical conditions.

We encourage everyone to stay on-site during the conference because often it's the tea breaks and time between formal sessions where connections are made and strengthened.  There is no discount for staying off-site as the cost for the venue remains the same.  

We will have free on-site childcare for the entire weekend at no extra cost, so don't let having to find childcare put you off - we'll provide accommodation, meals, and trained minders to keep your kids engaged and having fun. Read more about childcare here


How much?

Tickets will be $375 per person. This covers accommodation, venue hire, all meals, and administration costs. We will make scholarships (ticket and travel) available to at least 20% of our attendees, so please do not let the cost put you off.

On this note, we are on the hunt for more awesome businesses to fund scholarships.  If you’re interested or know of someone who might be, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch at

How to apply?

Because we have limited spaces, and diversity and inclusiveness matter to us, we run a registration and selection process.  

We’re 1000% sure you are an inspiring and generally kick-ass person, but sadly we can only accommodate 100 attendees, so If you aren’t selected, please know it is no reflection whatsoever on your awesomeness. Rather, it’s our effort to represent the diversity of Aotearoa as best we can. There are a number of events around the country so do keep an eye out and keep applying! 

To apply for WWGSD Wellington, complete the form below. PLEASE NOTE: Applications close 5pm 30 July 2017, and we’ll be in touch shortly after to let you know next steps.

Please note, if writing your application form is difficult for you, please feel welcome to send a video or other format. Just make sure you answer every question in the application form :)  Contact us at if you need any help.
