Looks at how the state of diversity, equity, and inclusion across the advertising industry has shifted in the last two years.
- Since the publication of the first State of the Industry Report, progress has been made across the report’s three key pillars: fostering workplace equality, achieving unstereotyped advertising, and empowering public action against stereotypes.
- Despite this progress, opportunities for supporting individuals in all their diversity throughout the industry, increasing the presence and decreasing unstereotyped portrayals of women and under-represented groups in ads, and ensuring company solidarity and action on social issues remain pertinent.
- Little information on the representation of individuals of the LGBTIQ+ community and people living with disabilities is collected in the sources examined.
- Additionally, workplace inclusion remains a barrier to career retention, growth, and full and equal participation of individuals in all their diversity in the workplace, with many citing barriers to career growth and opportunities as well as unfair treatment.
