Wacl launches Talent Award to act as gender equality catalyst

Campaign 15 Sep 2020 04:55

Women in Advertising and Communications (Wacl) has launched a talent competition aimed at improving gender equality in the industry.

Launched yesterday (15 September), the Wacl Talent Award is set to award grants of up to £3,000 to 30 women, which can be used by winners to fund the training course of their choice.

The award was previously called the Future Leaders Award, but has been changed to better align with Wacl's goal of accelerating gender equality in the marketing industry.

Women from all levels of the industry are eligible to apply, including freelancers, workers currently on furlough and those who have been made redundant.

“With training budgets decimated, this year, more than ever, we need to be investing in the next generation of female leaders in our industry,” Claire Hilton, global brand and people experience director at Virgin, and member of the Wacl executive committee, said.

“We at Wacl are proud to be launching the Talent Awards, supporting 100% of training bursaries up to £3,000, and encourage women across our industry to apply for the opportunity.”
