About us

Marketing Women Inc. is a non-for-profit association run by a voluntary committee which inspires, educates and supports female marketers. 

Our main activities include: a mentoring program which connects female marketers with an experienced female marketing professional; our events program; and an ongoing social media program to support your ongoing learning and growth. 

Mentor Program

BE A MENTEE

Are you looking for a different perspective on your career?

As a Mentee, you will be matched with a like-minded Mentor who is willing to share their insights and experience to help you in your career. Whatever stage you are at, a Mentor can provide independent advice and guidance to support you on your journey to greatness.

BE A MENTOR

Could your career journey have been easier with the support of someone as your GPS?

As a Mentor, you have the unique opportunity to positively impact your mentee’s career and life.
Our program provides Mentors with the opportunity to learn from a different perspective and reflect on their own career. Additionally, the program includes networking with other mentors.

Events

We offer a variety of events in a relaxed forum where women can discuss industry trends, the latest and greatest marketing campaigns and connect and swap advice.

Currently, there are no upcoming events scheduled.
