Great Minds - Diversity, Creativity & Inclusion

When advertising embraces diversity, both brands and viewers win. But how can brands take steps towards genuine inclusion and why is it so important?

Join us for a live session as we explore the topic of diversity, creativity and inclusion alongside ITV and System1’s latest report on inclusive advertising. Kate Waters, Director of Client Strategy and Planning at ITV, and Jon Evans, CMO at System1, will guide us through the eye-opening results of their recent research into 30 positively diverse ads and the responses of 10,000 people. They will then be joined by Ruepal Aujla, McCann Central Group Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Jason Davis, McCann Demand Junior Strategist, and Adam Bodfish, McCann Birmingham Executive Creative Director, for a live Q&A.

This session took place on Thursday 25th November. Missed it? Watch the session here.
