As WiM’s reach expands the need for global hubs is evident. The first of these is on the African continent, the fastest growing emerging market. WiM Africa is born.
Like WiM Global, WiM Africa aspires to bring together female professionals (and their male advocates) in the marketing, communications and advertising fields across the continent to connect, network, share ideas, experiences best practice and celebrate each other’s achievements. Forging the way for the next generation of female marketers breaking through.
Our mission is to address the gender imbalances at all levels of seniority and show future generations of young women coming through the ranks what is possible. In doing so we safeguard the long-term profitability of the sector.
WiM Africa launched in Durban, South Africa on the 16th August 2018 at the prestigious Loeries Creative Week.
