The Future of Diversity: Standing Shoulder to Shoulder.

Join us as we play our part in building a better indistry. 

On June 3, as The Black Lives Matter protests grew in strength, an open letter was published in the UK, calling on advertising leaders to commit to “actions, not words” by prioritising diversity, equality and inclusion, and harnessing “the cultural power of advertising” to bring prominence to the crisis of racial injustice.

Agencies were called upon to step up and take action, and this event is aimed at exploring these actions not seek out every answer, but to debate the questions and give platform to diversity of opinion.
