    Advertising (In)Equality: an industry conversation

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Does advertising have a responsibility to tell a better story about women? And if it’s going to change, how?

    Advertising is powerful stuff. It shapes and reflects our culture. In Australia, that’s a culture where one woman each week dies at the hands of a current or former partner. So, can advertising help to change this?

    In this industry conversation, led by Women’s Health Victoria, have your say on how to improve gender equality in advertising. Your voice will inform a framework for change to be recommended to the Victorian Government. 

    Bringing together leaders from across the industry, we’ll explore what gender equality in advertising might look like, the barriers to change, and the benefits it might bring for brand, business and society.

    A panel discussion and Q&A, followed by group conversations.
