Appointment of The Unmistakables as LIONS' strategic inclusion consultancy

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.

Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity will return as a hybrid festival, in Cannes, France, from 20-24 June 2022.
