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:
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.
Our 2020/21 campaigning focus is on flexible working, leading with our call for organisations to commit to being #FlexibleFirst. Flexible working is a primary influencing factor in closing the gender pay gap, ultimately delivering gender equality in our industry and beyond.
We also raise money for NABS, the charity that champions the well-being of our industry’s people.
