Diversity and Inclusion in Marketing in 2021: Has anything really changed?
by Sarah O'Neill, on 1 April, 2021
Are the top CEOs really just the same three guys swapping jobs and swapping clothes, as is my theory? I mean, it's not far off.
In 2019, FTSE 100 had more CEOs called Steve, than there were CEOs from ethnic minorities.
Anyway, beside the point. Has anything changed since then, especially in marketing? With such a booming and changing industry, you would expect the people to change too.
Marketing is so customer-focused, so people-focused. So why not extent this to the other side of the curtain, so to speak?
So as the industry's methods and technology progress, its social impact can't fall behind.
Diversity isn’t a nicety, it’s a necessity. Inclusion is an inescapable and necessary consequence of a global economy; it’s becoming impossible for companies to flourish without diverse organisations that reflect their consumer base. "
Luckily, we have a panel of four amazing speakers, discussing the issue itself, and the steps we can take to resolve it.
In ‘Diversity and Inclusion in Marketing in 2021: Has anything really changed?’, we'll cover:
