Inspiring action in media, marketing and advertising
Campaign Leading Change & the Women Leading Change Awards return to Singapore with an action-packed programme, bringing together exceptional talent and recognising the leaders propelling the industry forward.
When Women Leading Change was born in 2017, the objective was simple but the mission remains a challenge today. For real diversity, we must continue to work at it, evaluate and scrutinise our progress, and encourage change at every roadblock. Are our workforces representative of the incredible diversity we have in this vibrant region? Is the media we put out, the creativity and the ideas, representing real people, or falling into stereotyping tropes? Could we be doing more?
The action-orientated programme is designed to equip business leaders with roadmaps to strategically shift their working cultures and practices to make diversity an ‘everyone’ priority, while supporting and encouraging the next generation of leaders and creative talent through the practical leadership development workshop.
Join us on 28 May at Raffles Singapore for a day of forward-looking discussions, practical exercises and networking with industry’s change champions. Whatever your position or discipline, change involves the whole industry so register your interest today to be part of the conversation on shaping a better future for talent.
Following the conference, the Women Leading Change Awards will celebrate and honour those who are demonstrating outstanding leadership and innovation, paving the way for greater inclusivity in their respective roles.
Content Themes: Representation & Well-Being
Thinking differently is the lifeblood of the creative industries. From ethnicity and race, to sexual orientation and gender identity, diversity is all around us. People come in all different shapes and sizes and modern workplaces must embrace these differences and be inclusive, in order to thrive and survive.
In our mission for change, we'll rewrite the Mandate for Change to work on the next chapter for businesses in APAC, look at representation and identity, as well as shine the spotlight on mental health, during Mental Health Awareness Month this May.
Feeling a lack of belonging can lead to unhappiness and low productivity, while burnout and stress is rife in the fast-paced media industry. The industry has played a big role in challenging the stigma and building rhetoric on mental health through advertising messages. But, are we doing enough internally to protect and promote our own well-being? Is APAC falling behind other regions in addressing this big elephant in the room?
Happy, healthy and inclusive workforces lead to higher productivity, increased creativity and better retention.
Join us on 28 May as we work together on the next phase of change in APAC.
