‘…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

‘I am proud to be able to support in my own small way as an advisor on the WiM Advisory team. 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 recognizing that movement can drive the change business needs.’

Paul Frampton Calero, Former Group CEO, Havas Media Group UK and Ireland

‘At Axim, we are constantly looking for people to fill roles with titles like Enterprise Architect, Systems Integrator, Data Scientist, Data Analyst… I’ll be honest: as an ancient adman, they’re titles I had little understanding of a few years ago but they are important roles to provide the connection with the customer that the modern marketer has to have.

But it seems to me that there are still far too few women available to fill those roles at present. And that’s an area that needs to be addressed.’

Martin Smith, Chairman, AXIM Global
