Following a gender pay gap announcement, Emily compiled a business case for the creation of a women’s network at her organisation and its partner agencies, outlining her vision for the network to be a platform for inspiration, support, encouragement and an opportunity to make new and more meaningful connections. The Women’s Network hosted 6 events in the first 7 months, including workshops, speed networking, coaching training and talks. In 2016, Emily also helped launch a new consultancy within her organisation called Female Tribes, looking to change the way the world works for women, starting with more diverse representation in the media. Since launching, Female Tribes has raised awareness and facilitated change within many client corporations around how they communicate to women. Emily and the Female Tribes team are now working with tech company Connectt to launch Female Tribes as a social network: a place for women to create, connect and be inspired. In 2018, Emily won the WACL Future Leaders Award, and has since supported other women across the organisation to apply too. She also helps to organise NPP Women in Marketing, a word-of-mouth, peer-to-peer network with a diverse mix of women from both agency and client side, providing greater insight into the challenges faced by women across the industry.
