FWA Champions are individuals in senior leadership positions who champion and support women seeking success on both the professional and personal fronts. They effect change in their organisations and are firm supporters of gender diversity and inclusion in their workplaces and society.
FWA members get a chance to interact and meet FWA Champions in the FWA mentoring programme when FWA Champions speak at FWA-led events. In addition to this, FWA's new Conversations with FWA Champions series allows our members deeper interaction with our Champions in a small-group setting, to hear the experiences and journeys of our Champions and to learn from them.
