Women Who Advance Associations 2024: #InspireInclusion

‘Women Who Advance’ proudly continues to spotlight the exceptional talent within the international association community. For International Women’s Day 2024, we honor female association leaders, pioneers, and influencers who are at the forefront of fostering inclusion, empowering women from all walks of life, and creating spaces where every voice is heard and valued.

Associations play a key role as sector thought leaders and catalysts for innovation. At their very best, they act as a platform for uniting a rich tapestry of individuals and organisations, working collaboratively to shape the future of their respective fields. It’s this inbuilt purpose that ideally positions them to champion a culture of inclusivity.

In 2024, we embrace the International Women’s Day Theme #InspireInclusion to explore how associations can benefit from actively involving a mosaic of women — regardless of their race, age, abilities, beliefs, body image, and identities — in all facets of their operations. From executive leadership and volunteer roles to administrative staff and keynote speakers – inspiring inclusion creates environments that are innovative and dynamic, and also representative and equitable.

As every year, we want to hear your success stories and insights on how embracing inclusivity has been a transformative force within your association. We encourage you to share the ways you’ve made prioritizing, promoting, and championing inclusivity a central part of your mission. Share with us how your commitment to inclusion has driven progress, and sparked transformation – and how you will continue to #InspireInclusion in your work and in your communities.
