We celebrate the role models who are changing our industry for the better, from the work we make to the way we work together.

The IPA believes a more diverse and a more inclusive advertising industry is a better, healthier one. That’s why we’re teaming up with Unilever to create the iList. A celebration of industry role models who are driving this change.

It doesn’t matter what level a person works at. If they’re doing something that fosters and nurtures more inclusivity, whether that’s in the way they work or the actual work they produce, this is the moment to nominate them. It can be a colleague, a supplier, it can be yourself.

The iList is a recognition of those who are truly promoting and championing inclusivity within the advertising industry.

We’ve assembled a stellar group of judges including Karen Blackett OBE to select the first ever iList and have the backing of the Mayor of London. 

The submission window is now closed.

Please get in touch with Ava if you have any questions.

Key dates

  • 21 January 2020: Submission window closes
  • End of February 2020: Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by team of judges. 
  • May 2020: Final iList will be announced at a celebratory gala in May and featured in Campaign magazine, the iList’s media partner.


The iList is founded by the IPA and is an IPA Talent Leadership Group (TLG) initiative

Unilever believes that diverse and inclusive workplaces makes business, and society, stronger and that change must start from within. Find out about Unilever’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.
