Women in Public Affairs

As in most industries, women are under-represented as senior leaders within the world of public affairs.


There are some incredibly successful and inspirational women who have made it to the top, but many more aspire to get there and struggle to achieve it.

Our aim is to bring together women from across all areas of the public affairs industry. 

We run events which enable networking, build friendships and provide support, advice and training for women at all levels in the industry.

 About Us

The Women in Public Affairs Network was launched in 2012 by Ella Fallows and Laura Gilmore as an opportunity for women from across the industry to come together in an informal setting to share experiences, offer advice and support, and explore how we can work together to build a more diverse and representative public affairs industry. 

Now in its seventh year, Women in Public Affairs is a well-established forum for women at all stages of their careers in public affairs.

We continue to focus on providing useful and interesting events with outstanding speakers which inform, inspire and support public affairs practitioners throughout their careers.



We run a range of events for women working in public affairs at every stage of their career.
