Listen to our dynamic panel discussion on diversity, inclusion and female empowerment in the creative industry, recorded at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on June 21, 2019.
The panel, with the topic “Is OUT(side) the new IN?”, was moderated by Laura Jordan-Bambach, award-winning founder of global women’s creative organization SheSays and COO of Mr. President.
This event was a unique partnership between Google’s diversity initiative Rare, SheSays and Creative by Collective, with image support by Stocksy; all four entities have diversity and inclusion in their DNA.
Our goal? Inspire international leaders (+ YOU!) to make the industry more inclusive and diverse via the insights, stories and expertise by our eclectic panel. After all, innovation, creativity and having a competitive edge depends on diverse + inclusive teams. Which is why we also partnered with Stocksy to create the “Make It Happen, Let the OUT(side) IN” workbook, to show diverse images and further inspire leaders to take immediate action.
