“Since 1994, women journalists from all over the UK have joined in their hundreds. Every level of entrant, from well established national newspaper editors, to the newest freelance, have attended WIJ talks, lectures, debates, discussions and many other events.”
We are extremely grateful to Tesco, AB Ports, Cision, Rosewood London; Lexington Communications and the University of Westminster for their support. In exchange we offer:
- Acknowledgement and branding at events they sponsor or host and via our database, social media and website.
- Guest tickets for events they host or sponsor and to our summer and Christmas parties.
- Introductions to leading media figures in their industry sector.
What sponsors can do for us
We keep our membership rates and ticket prices very low to encourage journalists at every stage of their careers. Everyone is a volunteer except our part-time administrator and our head of mentoring. We need venues on a one-off or ongoing basis to offer hospitality for events that range from parties for more than 200 guests, to expert panel discussions for 50-100 and intensive Saturday workshops for up to 15. We are hugely grateful to our generous hosts and sponsors including Wiggin LLP, Rosewood London, Threadneedles Hotel, Cision and AB Ports, but we need more!
If you would like to discuss how you can help through sponsorship or hospitality and/or events spaces, we would love to hear from you. Please contact our administrator Kate McMillan at WIJUK@aol.com
