LGBTQ-inclusive Advertising with PrideAM
Talk | YCN Library — For our members and programme participants

Join PrideAM as they present key findings from their recently published report Outvertising 2, and learn about the value of LGBTQ + inclusive advertising.

On Tuesday the 30th July we will be joined by PrideAM, a not-for-profit organisation for LGBTQ people working in the marketing industry and their straight allies, who will be presenting findings and key ideas from their recently published report Outvertising 2 — the world’s most comprehensive guide to producing LGBTQ-inclusive advertising. Using primary and secondary research, campaign case studies and industry leader interviews, it builds on the ground-breaking work PrideAM undertook in 2016 when it published the first Outvertising. PrideAM lobbies brands and their creative and media partners for more positive LGBTQ inclusion in all paid media, and fights for a prejudice free creative working environment as part of a joined-up inclusion and diversity strategy.

Following a preview at the Cannes advertising festival in June, and the official launch in early July; members of PrideAM, Mark Runacus, Emy Mendoza and Kimi Gilbert will be coming to the YCN Library for a talk us through their guide and findings — and to open up discussion around it with those along. 

Please get in touch below to save yourself a seat.
