All In, the UK advertising industry’s initiative to build a workplace where everyone feels they belong, is using International Women’s Day to launch a series of How-To sessions on workplace inclusion, starting with action on gender equality.
All In Census data found that women were six times more likely to be personally discriminated against because of their gender. A session on March 16 will cover how flexible working can help to address this gender inequality and ultimately benefit all genders. (Book here and for more information on Action 4 see here.)
Subsequent sessions will examine how to improve the experience and representation of Asian talent (March 24: book here and for more information on Action 5 see here) and how to improve the experience and representation of older talent (March 30: book here and for more information on Action 6 see here.)
“As we mark International Women’s Day, we are delighted to be kick-starting the second phase of our All In sessions with a brilliant line-up of speakers,” said Sharon Lloyd Barnes, Commercial Director and Inclusion Lead, Advertising Association.
“Responses to the All In Census showed the need to improve the representation of women and Asian talent, as well as combat ageism in our industry. These sessions are already helping to bring these actions to life and support companies in achieving All In Champion status.”
Improving the experience and representation of Women, Asian talent and Older talent is the focus of the second phase of All In Actions, developed by the Advertising Association’s Inclusion Working Group in partnership with industry groups – WACL, MEFA (Media for All), and 40 Over Forty.
Sessions on how to implement the first three actions covering Black Talent, Disabled Talent and Working Class Talent are available to watch back on YouTube, with the next three actions covering LGBTQ+, Mental Health and Physical Disability to be announced.
