Launched in 2010, the WIM Awards are established to recognise the economic, social influence and impact of women to millions.
‘…The aim of the WIM (Women in Marketing) Awards is to promote, recognise and celebrate women’s achievements in leadership roles, who are making a difference in a profession that touches the public in millions of ways every day’.
Ade Onilude, Founder & CEO of Women in Marketing
‘My involvement with the WIM Awards 2016 is two-fold; both a personal commitment as an advisor and also as a sponsor of one of the awards, representing the business I am fortunate enough to work for, namely Havas.
I am a vocal advocate of the need for change with regards to gender equality and inclusion. My personal belief is that we need more men in leadership roles to join and help lead the conversation if we want to accelerate change. As a father of two daughters, I worry that they are not entering a world where they have the same opportunities and equality as their brother. Women must often fight to be noticed and convince through evidence and experience, whilst men are often given the benefit of the doubt, or worse first consideration. Ade Onilude does an amazing job promoting a refreshing, positive and global agenda regarding diversity & inclusion.
I am, therefore, proud to be able to support in my own small way as an advisor. Ade’s focus for WIM on innovation and new approaches is one I am a huge supporter of. Gone are the days of command and control; leadership must be inclusive, empathetic, understanding and fallible – these are on the whole qualities that I see as more feminine than masculine, so we need more women in leadership to correct the dominance of the male, pale and stale. The purpose of Havas is to re-imagine the way things have worked in the past and that includes a fresh and progressive approach to attracting, retaining and developing a diverse workforce that enables us to best service the clients we represent and the audiences they are there to serve. Leaders that genuinely promote change are also those who promote an inclusive and diverse culture. WIM (Women in Marketing) smartly captures a movement around women, whilst also recognising that movement can drive the change business needs.’
