In line with the pillar of its mission to promote gender equality in advertising and design, The One Club for Creativity has launched its first annual Right The Ratio Summit, set for January 23-24, 2020 in New York.
The inaugural two-day gathering is aimed at decision makers with the authority to advance workplace equality and foster a better, more gender-balanced environment at their agencies. The summit will serve as a forum to share ideas, insights and solutions that can be acted upon through all levels of an agency.
Right The Ratio Summit speakers included:
Right The Ratio takes place January 23-24, 2020 at Convene, 605 3rd Avenue in New York. To maintain gender balance, space is limited to 50 female-identifying and 50 male-identifying individuals who are agency decision makers, with an equal 50/50 representation of speakers. Prospective attendees must register and be screened before ticket purchase. The summit’s closed-door and limited-attendee format is designed to encourage open and honest conversation.
“As a global nonprofit organisation, we have a long-standing commitment to giving back to the industry and providing programs that help improve the industry's diversity and gender equality,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club, who will also speak at the summit. “The ad industry has a gender bias problem, and institutional change will happen only when it comes from management. We’re starting Right The Ratio to stimulate dialogue among agency leaders and make that change happen.”
