Welcome to Women Unltd.
Women Unltd has been formed in Birmingham by women in the creative and marketing industry.
The aim is to provide a platform to give women access to support, inspirational stories, experiences and shared ideas
We are from a diverse range of backgrounds and mix of skills united by a common belief that through the power of sharing, women in the marketing and creative industries can help to support, inspire and empower each other and together have
a stronger voice.
We provide a place for women to come together and create the opportunity to fully realise their potential through their stories, experiences and ideas, gaining new thinking from the successes of others.

In March this year we launched our podcast Unfiltered. Unfiltered is the honest truth about being a woman in the creative and marketing industries. After realising that we’re pretty tired of the same old sexist sh*t, ‘Women Unltd’ and ‘We Are Outspoken’ have joined forces, bringing in expert guests to share experiences, solutions and hot tips.

We are committed to creating a platform to champion women in the creative and marketing industry and help them realise their potential. Women Unltd. is not for profit and all proceeds are channelled into activity to support, mentor, inspire and empower women.
We come from varied and contrasting backgrounds but share the same passion to help other women find inspiration and support through talking, exchanging ideas and learning from others. We believe providing this opportunity is vital in helping women to grow and take on new challenges in their professional lives. We all have lots of experiences to share and strongly empathise with women’s issues.
