WOW championing working women
Founded by Jacqueline Gold CBE, WOW Championing Working Women is an organisation that represents the interests of women in the UK who work. Initially set up to recognise the achievements of, and support, women starting their own businesses through the #WOW twitter competition, the growth and needs of the network has led Jacqueline to develop the WOW offering. With a clear objective to use WOW to give a voice to women who work, empower these women and to celebrate their successes, Jacqueline’s vision is that together women across the UK can truly influence and achieve change that allows all women who want to, the opportunity to work.
Jacqueline will utilise her contacts from across the worlds of business and politics as well as her extensive network of WOW women to drive change in the workplace that ensures the huge pool of female talent that’s out there is used to its full potential.
From the class room to the board room, Jacqueline will focus on what really impacts working women. For Jacqueline, this isn’t just about talking about change, its creating change, and a change that benefits not only this generation of working women but future generations too.
By creating an organisation that celebrates women’s successes and gives a platform to the issues that really matter, Jacqueline believes that WOW will be able contribute to the UK finally achieving female equality in the work place.
