A message from our president

WACL is an industry networking organisation that brings together the most senior female leaders in marketing and communications. Our members are drawn from brands, media owners, advertising and media agencies, and other industry businesses, and our purpose is to accelerate gender equality in communications and marketing. To deliver this we focus on three things:

  • Inspiration
  • Support
  • Campaigning

We provide inspiration to aspiring female talent via Gather, our annual conference, and our quarterly mentoring sessions, and offer training bursaries via our Future Leaders Award to aid women in achieving their potential. We also come together to inspire and help each other and regularly hold prestigious speaker dinner events and activities for the enjoyment of our members and their guests, and in support of our purpose.

We also raise money for NABS, the charity that champions the well-being of our industry’s people.
