Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality in Advertising Summit 2018

Taking us out of the cold of January & into the warm of October, the ICA has rebranded its annual industry celebration. FFWD Advertising & Marketing Week is now Inclusivity, Diversity & Equality in Advertising (I.D.E.A.) Summit. At its heart it is still all about creativity, media & transformation but now through the lens of the business imperative of inclusivity, diversity & equality.

The Inclusivity, Diversity and Equality in Advertising Summit is focused on inspiring action that will deliver diversity in teams and workplaces for better business results. Brands, agencies and thought leaders from across the world will come together to showcase ways in which greater inclusivity, diversity, and equality will help meet the demands of today's advertisers. Canada has built the capital to be a global authority on this issue, which will be reflected in topics at IDEA that include World Class Creative, Innovative Platforms, Employee Engagement, and Education & Elevation.
