Positive Planning for Meaningful Careers

Updated: Jul 2, 2020


Founded in 1923, WACL is an industry 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 and support to women at all stages of their career (including, of course, our 250+ members) from aspiring female talent who attend Gather, our annual training conference, our quarterly mentoring and discussion sessions, the training bursaries we support via our Future Leaders Award as well as to those looking to develop a plural career through our Non-Executive Director (NED) group.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Gather was changed to be a week of free digital events and took place in May. The theme this year was ‘Go Further Together’ and highlighted outstanding team performance. All the sessions were excellent and inspiring (and accessible online) but we felt this particular one, by Executive Coach Fiona Parashar was particularly relevant for the Grace Blue Transition site with so much practical advice on how to achieve the career, and life, you want.

We hope you enjoy it.
