Building communities of Girls, Women and Leaders so that together we can put an end to social and systemic inequalities for women and girls at work and in schools.
The Power of the Collective

You may have heard one of these before:
"It's your duty as a woman is to be a mother," "how will you cope juggling kids and work?" "bring money into the home but not more than your husband," "work hard, but stay in your lane," "dream big, but avoid male dominated industries, it's not for girls," "can women really have it all..." the list could go on.
Because of messaging like this and so many other factors we have seen many women hold themselves back and not achieve what they set out to do in their lives.
Our vision is to live in a world where gender does not limit our ability to create the life of our dreams.
Through our work we have seen that there are many barriers that can affect a woman's ability to dream freely. We focus on these three barriers:
1. What we learn in school
2. What we experience at work
3. The messages we tell ourselves
As such we work with girls, women and leaders of institutions to create change in schools, in the workplace and within ourselves.
Collective ambition gives birth to collective action and that's when real change happens.
For The Woman Campaign, Series 3 out now
Here's how you can Get Involved with The Women's Association
We work with girls and young women 12-20 years old.
We focus on barriers to entry into the workplace for girls and young women, especially those from marginalised communities. We also focus on building a community of girls that inspire, empower and support each other.
We connect women through our events, campaigns and roundtables. We use the power of campaigning and community to tackle the limitations we often place on ourselves that can hold us back from creating the life of our dreams like imposter syndrome, lack of confidence etc.
We develop insights to reveal the systemic barriers that hold women and girls back and we support businesses and schools with actions to create change.
Our focus is on investing in/developing talent, improving workplace culture that supports women and bringing together, women, girls and leaders
“This partnership is close to all of our hearts at McCann. We all talk about investing in the next generation of female talent but that starts well before recruitment. We have to work with girls and young women to understand what they want out of a career today and how we as business leaders can build an environment that is safe and inspiring for all. It is a privilege to be working with The Women’s Association. Exciting times ahead.”
