Well guess who’s coming to breakfast, at the Cannes Ad festival that is?
The one and only Gloria Steinem, who’s been at the forefront of the women’s rights movement for the last five decades.
How appropriate is that? Many industries are grappling with diversity and gender equality issues and as you know Adland is right up near the top of the list.
Steinem is participating in the IPG Women’s Breakfast on June 20th at the festival. The discussion will also include IPG CEO Michael Roth, Me Too Movement founder Tarana Burke, U.S. fencing Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad and several other industry players.
That lineup should provide some inspiring discussion about what kind of progress the industry is (or isn’t) making on the gender equality front.
They should stream that one so everybody can listen in.
