The IPA has published a shortlist of 63 contenders for its iList – a roll call of ad practitioners who are helping to make adland a more inclusive place.
The list spans all levels of job role, from chief executive to HR, from creative to strategy – at agencies and media owners, as well as freelancers.
Everyone appearing in the shortlist has been invited to be interviewed later this month by a panel of industry luminaries, including Karen Blackett, UK country manager at WPP and chairwoman of MediaCom.
The final iList, which is sponsored by Unilever, will be announced at a celebratory gala in May and will feature in Campaign.
The iList is designed to promote inclusivity in adland, celebrating role models who have helped to make the industry a more inclusive one. It was announced by the IPA in November 2019.
We are pleased to announce that two of our own Xaxians have been shortlisted!
- Jo Davey, global director of people performance, Xaxis
- Akama Ediomi-Davies, product director, Xaxis/GroupM
Congratulations, Jo and Kam!
