Join women across North America at the Toronto launch of Time’s Up/Advertising.
Women who work in advertising & marketing communications agencies are invited to bring their voices to this open forum. Come & discuss the Time’s Up movement, how it impacts our industry & what we can do about it.
The Toronto event is being coordinated with Time’s Up/Advertising forums in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles & San Francisco.

Time’s Up/Advertising launched on March 12, 2018, with the mission “to drive new policies, practices, decisions & tangible actions that result in more balanced, diverse & accountable leadership; address workplace discrimination, harassment & abuse; & creative equitable & safe cultures within our agencies.” Time’s Up/Advertising was inspired by Time’s Up, a global force for business reform across industry categories.
