*New groups*

Climate Crisis

The climate crisis is one of the biggest challenges we collectively face. This group meets online to make connections between members who have committed to taking action or are looking to do so in the future.

Leaders of Colour

Locality is determined to create a safe space for leaders of colour, for peer learning, personal development and capacity building. The co-designed agenda aims to help meet individual needs, challenge the sector and seek development opportunities.


Meeting every three months, this is a space where members can share their marketing top tips, troubleshoot challenges and swap insights. A great opportunity for marketers and non-marketer to join together to strengthen our collective skills and voice.
