Stepping into the Spotlight: International Women's Day

Celebrating how far we’ve come in creating equality, particularly in the advertising industry.

To mark International Women’s Day, we have a special edition of our Stepping into the Spotlight series, where we’ll be raising awareness of the bias that’s still happening, and ensuring that we take action against it. We will also be celebrating how far we’ve come in creating equality, particularly in the advertising industry.

Joining us will be representatives from fantastic organisations fighting to make gender equality a reality:

Lydia Amoah, Award-winning business coach, TV presenter, Inspirational speaker and author of The Black Pound Report

Claire Barnett, Executive Director, UN Women UK

Rachel Bristow, Associate, Conker Executive Search and Talent and WACL Treasurer

Sophie Robinson, Chief Marketing Officer, The Stylist Group

Gain up-to-the minute insight into how the fight for gender equality is going (specifically in our industry) and what we can all do to help move it forwards including:

  • Recent findings on how lockdown has affected women
  • How you can get involved in Unstereotype Alliance and UN women 
  • Tools to help you make gender equality in Adland a reality

This needs to be a discussion between all people, at all levels within the industry. So whatever your gender or job title or discipline, please do come and be a part of this event on 9 March.

Your joining link will be sent separately prior to the event.
