Hello and welcome to WACL, Women in Advertising and Communications Leadership.
We are an organisation of over 200 senior women from advertising, communications and media, on a mission to accelerate gender equality in our industry.
We support each other, coming together for peer mentoring and to hear from external speakers. We inspire female talent to reach for the highest level of leadership through our Talent Festival and Awards, and we campaign for change across the industry. We also raise money for NABs, our industry charity, and support timeTo, the campaign to end sexual harassment.
This year our focus is on ‘Leading for Change.’
Lockdown forced us all to adopt new working practices and showed many businesses what could be achieved through flexible working. The return to the office will undoubtedly create further changes to our cultures and our ways of working. We believe that each of these is an opportunity to design for equality and create a fairer, more diverse and more equitable working world.
