Our diversity programme

The Women of Tomorrow Awards forms a core pillar of the IPA’s Diversity programme - which aims to help the industry achieve diversity targets by 2020. Currently, only 26.9% of MD/CEO level are female - by 2020 we want to see this at 40%. 

Ensuring diversity at all levels, is vital for our industry in order to attract and retain the best talent; and remain relevant and representative of our clients, consumers and audiences in the future.

The IPA is a lead member of the Unstereotype Alliance and sits on its Communications and Advocacy group. It brings together a powerful global coalition of more than 20 industry leaders behind the common goal of eliminating gender bias and harmful gender stereotypes from their advertising.

The Unstereotype Alliance supports IPA Women of Tomorrow and encourages the applicants to think about new ways of challenging stereotypical depictions of women in the media and to talk about the actions they have taken to support gender equality in their own organisations.

Women of Tomorrow winners may be asked to champion Unstereotype Alliance as ambassadors within their agency.
