IPA Talent and Diversity Hub

A practical resource to help agencies make meaningful change in their diversity and inclusion journeys

The IPA Talent and Diversity Hub is an extension of our A Future of Fairness publication. The hub acts as a practical resource to help agencies make meaningful change in their diversity and inclusion journeys through deep diving into particular areas outlined in our A Future of Fairness roadmap.

It aims to provide clear guidance and inspiration on how to foster a real sense of inclusion for the incredible talent that make up our industry, as well as the work we create for our clients.

"As an optimist, I believe this will be the decade where equal opportunity is finally a reality for all, regardless of age, class, gender, geography, race, religion, visible or invisible disability and/or sexual orientation. It’s up to all of us to put in the work and effort to enable everyone to have their rightful share of opportunity."
