Diversity Matters: Summer Series 2

Brands in a time of a pandemic

IPA and Creative Equals invite you to discuss how inclusion will steer us through COVID-19.

The series of three webinars to see in your Summer will debate key topics and provide tangible actions, featuring voices from across our sector. Join us for the second event in this series. 

We have been living through a pandemic of COVID-19 and of racism. How brands behave during this time could determine if you retain or gain new customers once COVID-19 is over. How have brands behaved authentically? And what has been the response to #BlackLivesMatter? Who has done it as a part of their purpose? And who has fallen wide of the mark? Join key industry leaders to discuss brands that have tailored their customer response to COVID-19 in an authentic way, and the learnings we can take for our clients.

Creative Equals would like to be able to get in touch with you regarding similar events and updates. If you would like to opt in to be contacted please contact ava@ipa.co.uk.

Session 3 - July (date TBC): How to keep inclusion at the top of the agenda during COVID-19

We all know the business case for inclusion in terms of profitability, innovation and creativity, yet COVID-19 is in danger of eroding years of work on supporting diversity.  We need CMO's to keep inclusion alive for the agency  sector.  Join us to hear from CMO's on how they will continue to work with agencies who use diverse teams to create their work ensuring representation in front and behind the screens.
