Limitless

 

At Thoughtworks, we advocate passionately for positive social impact and greater equality in our industry and wider society. As such, we believe it’s important to find space for women leaders to share common concerns, experiences and learnings. We launched Limitless specifically for this purpose.

 

As we reflect on the initiative, we are delighted to see the Limitless community continue to grow and are proud to facilitate valuable exchanges alongside hugely inspirational, trailblazing women speakers from a wide range of backgrounds. Our next event will take place 12:00-1:15pm GMT on Thursday, March 10, 2022, during International Women's Week.
