LIONS and The Fawcett Society release new Guide aimed at smashing gender stereotypes in children’s advertising.
The Smashing Stereotypes in Advertising Guide provides the industry with a blueprint to create powerful creative work that challenges outdated stigmas.
Earlier this year we committed to engaging a DEI specialist consultancy to help us better understand what happened in relation to our appointment of the Roger Hatchuel Academy Dean, as well as to examine our practices across all areas of LIONS, and to advise on changes to the way we work so that we can ensure that everything we do as a business and brand is considered through the lens of equality.
Following a robust tender process involving a number of potential specialists, we can now confirm the appointment of The Unmistakables. They will be conducting a full and independent review of our processes and practices.
We anticipate the high-level findings of this review to be available mid-2022.
