About Us

Our story

Marketing Women Inc. provides a fun, inspiring, and supportive environment where marketers have the opportunity to network, learn and grow in their profession.

We engage marketers who identify as women through events with well-regarded, relevant and interesting speakers, a mentoring program and an ongoing social media presence / blog.

We are different to other networking groups as we are clearly focused on our niche market, and in doing so are more intimate, facilitating smaller gatherings of like-minded professionals. Our approach is relaxed and fun, without pressure or expectation.

Marketing Women Inc is run by a passionate  committee group of volunteers, who work together to support our members’ professional and personal development.
