Yes. This is RISE. This is CHANGE. That means more women in creative leadership (only 14-16% of directors are women across design, advertising and film) and about 1-2% are BAME. How can we have authentic authors unless we collectively create a groundswell of game-changers? RISE exists to transform this story across the creative, media and tech industries. And, we're INCLUSIVE. For change to happen, we need everyone to be involved in the narrative. It's at the London Symphony Orchestra's home in Shoreditch, one of the most beautiful locations in town.
