Women that have empowered women in advertising & marketing to pursue their dreams

To celebrate diversity and empowerment on International Women’s Day and beyond, the theme for this year is ‘Inspire Inclusion.’ Every year, March 08 is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day serves as a powerful reminder of the progress made toward gender equality and highlights the work that still needs to be done.

They’ve felt a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment because of these women who led by example.  

We reached out to women in the advertising and media industry to find out those impactful figures who have inspired them to pursue their dreams, believed in them, and pushed them to be their best version.
