A weekend for women who get shit done - the supporters, doers, and problem solvers. Get together for a weekend with your peers to share, learn, and build a network of amazing women in a beautiful, to-be-announced location near Wellington.
WWGSD is a place for people who identify as women and who are passionate about what they do, whatever that is, to get together and grow. Titles aren't important. Hierarchy isn't important. Women inspiring and engaging with other women is what this event is all about.
At WWGSD you’ll get to spend time with women from a diverse range of backgrounds and life experiences, from all stages in their careers - hear their stories, share your own. See how women do things different.
This isn’t your standard conference; it's an unconference.
UHHH, AN UNCONFERENCE?
At an unconference, there's no pre-set agenda. The plan for the weekend will be built by our group of 120 women on the first night and sessions will be run informally based on what we want to discuss and learn. It's all about your interests and experiences.

SOUNDS GREAT! WHEN AND WHERE?
The first Women Who Get Shit Done unconference will be held just outside Wellington from 24 to 26 June (at Tatum Park). Transport plans will be sourced once a venue is confirmed and we are working to ensure the event is family life-friendly.
The venue will be accessible but please let us know of any specific requirements you have. This event is all about you; your comfort and safety is important!
SIGN ME UP!
If this all sounds like something you're keen on, click the “I’m Interested” button below and tell us a little about yourself.
Unfortunately, we have limited spaces so may have to place people on a wait list. We’re giving priority to underrepresented groups to make sure we bring together a diverse group of women and experiences. We hope this will be the first of many gatherings of excellent women who get shit done.
MAYBE I’M NOT QUITE WHO YOU’RE LOOKING FOR...
Stop right there! We want to bring together a diverse and inclusive group of women from across Aotearoa.
You don’t need to be a founder, CEO or celebrity; we’re looking for women making shit happen in their corner of the world. From public service to media, the arts to nonprofits and social enterprises, tech startups to established corporates, and everything in between. If you’re getting shit done then we want to hear from you.
Remember: You have experience to share. You can solve problems. You may even have ideas in need of co-conspirators. You’re awesome.
I’M INTERESTED! WHEN WILL I HEAR FROM YOU?
We’ll be in touch with everyone by the end of April. If you’re selected* to attend you’ll be asked to confirm your place. Everyone else will be popped on a waiting list and emailed if a spot opens up.
*Why “selected"? Because diversity and inclusiveness matter to us. We want to ensure we gather together the greatest possible range of views and backgrounds. We are 100092% sure you are an awesome, inspiring, kick-ass person. If you aren’t selected, it will be no reflection whatsoever on your talents or abilities. Rather, it’s our effort to bring as many diverse women into the room as we possibly can. And, we're hoping to have more unconferences in the future!
