We all know that advertising can make a powerful difference when it comes to representation. Brands and creators alike have the opportunity to make a real impact by bringing underrepresented communities to the forefront. But what about representation in the workplace?

From the artwork displayed in offices, to hosted events and management training, it’s important to create inclusive environments - but for smaller or independent agencies this is easier said than done.

In this session, you will hear from Partner & Chief Operating Officer of independent creative agency Mekanism, Mike Zlatoper; Mekanism Director of Talent, Amanda Speer; and Director of Creator Force, Chris Wade, as they discuss the subtleties often overlooked in creating an inclusive workplace - and more importantly how to sustain social equity long term.
