Female Leaders of Tomorrow

‘Female Leaders of Tomorrow’ is a Mentoring Programme launched by the IMAA to provide guidance and support to emerging leaders within the independent industry as they navigate their career paths and progress within media.

The purpose of this programme is to create a support network between accomplished industry leaders (Mentors) and programme participants (Mentees). By creating this network, the program aims to provide valuable guidance, knowledge sharing, and professional development opportunities.

We hope that through a collaborative relationship, mentees will have the opportunity to learn from the wisdom and experiences of their mentors, gain valuable industry insights, expand their professional networks, and enhance their skills and capabilities. Ultimately, the mentor program seeks to empower mentees and support their growth, enabling them to achieve their career goals and excel in the industry.


Overview of the Programme

Wendy Gower has been appointed to facilitate this programme on behalf of the IMAA. With a long track record of agency leadership, Wendy has launched her own training, coaching and mentoring consultancy, which specialises in the communications industry.

She has a background in large global media agencies, holding leadership roles across London, Sydney, and Melbourne and working closely with some of the world’s leading brands.

The programme itself is designed as a hybrid of both face-to-face and online sessions, which will be both facilitated by Wendy and then individually between mentors and mentees.
