The Lost Girls - Kat Ellis, Head of Planning at McCann Bristol
Lots of people lament the lack of women in creative senior roles within the advertising industry, fewer get to interrogating it. And that's exactly what Kat has done with her recent research which she brings to us. Only 30% of all advertising creatives are female, dropping to 11% of creative directors. To help address this, Kat conducted research into the disparity between the number of women studying creative advertising, art and design, and those that actually end up working in the creative departments of advertising agencies. Her research tackles why up to half of qualified female talent is lost between education and a first permanent creative role. She also provides recommendations for how the advertising industry can work together with education to raise awareness of this problem and help female students better prepare for entry to industry.
