Women in Advertising and Communications London

WACL is a unique and very special club for the most influential women in the UK Communications Industry and was established in 1923. Since then WACL members have met to network, inspire and support each other and have a lot of fun in the process. Our members represent the most senior women in client organisations, media owners, media and communications agencies.

WACL is a not-for-profit organisation funded by our members and activities. Each year we generate significant funds for two chosen charities - NABS and our charity of the year which is the Alzheimer’s Society.

We hold a range of events to raise funds for our chosen charities, including speaker dinners, members’ events and a Christmas gala. We are committed to developing female talent in our industry investing our time and energy to encourage and inspire women and run training workshops throughout the year which culminate in Gather - a brilliant day of inspiration and learning.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to know more about us. Details about joining the club can be found on the WACL membership tab in the ‘About’ channel of this site: http://www.wacl.info/about/wacl-membership-information
