The creative industry and diversity are still struggling to get along. Despite being an industry that
thrives with unique ideas, opinions and differing life experiences - the dangers of
unconscious bias in interview rooms, meeting rooms and creative reviews are just as
present as they were in the 50s. Sure, there might not be as many midday whiskeys, but
the gender gap is as relentless as ever.
Constantly on the lookout for a solution, one of the most interesting discussions is the
contentious dichotomy between quotas and merit. Do we have to set rules and adapt
company standards? Or does this greatly devalue the credentials of an entire gender?
Why a debate?
To challenge the conventions and limitations that underpin and often undermine the
creative industry.
The intention of this debate is to disrupt our mindsets and push us beyond the traditional,
top line discussions around the issues of gender diversity.
All audience members should be left with more questions than answers. We want you to
scrutinise your role, your company and the long term repercussions of a blasé attitude.
Each attendee, will not only witness a fiery debate, but they should be left with at least
one unanswered question that challenges the way they view their role, the industry and the
future of commercial creativity.
Our Speakers:
Adam Ferrier, Rose Herceg, Carolyn Miller, Linda McGregor, Mike Beckerleg and Jane Burhop. 3 for quotas and 3 for merit … but which three for which?
You’ll have to join us to find out!
This event is sponsored by Common Ventures and B&T Women In Media and hosted by Legends & Leaders.
