To mark International Women’s Day 2023, we held a special edition of our Stepping into the Spotlight series, with a range of stellar speakers who explored what we can all do to make this industry an unbiased, welcoming environment where everyone belongs.
Our special edition of Stepping into the Spotlight begins with an introduction from Leila Siddiqi, Associate Director, Diversity at the IPA on the state of the industry and the recent IPA Census 2022 results.

You work in the creative industry, you tell stories for a living, you create images...let's have the imagination to break down those barriers...and break out of the boxes society has put us in.
Creature London & WACL's Hanisha Kotecha, Dentsu Creative's Balpreet Mangat and Vodafone's Anne Stilling discuss what adland can do to improve the representation and experiences of women - from AI tools to scan diversity in the ads, to spending power in the home.View photos from the event
