Get your tissues ready. There wasn’t a single dry eye in the room at the end of a session at Cannes Lions last week on the power of creativity as a force for gender balancing the world.
WPP’S UK country manager Karen Blackett OBE was joined on stage by Unilever’s EVP of global marketing & global head of diversity and inclusion Aline Santos and P&G’s global design officer Phil Duncan, as they discussed how their brands are playing their part in creating global gender equality.
We’ve collated some of the ads they showed as the power of these is self-evident.

iv. #RealMoms, Baby Dove, Unilever. P&G’s Duncan chose this as his favourite recent campaign from his biggest competitor and shared a very personal story about his own mum who had given him up for adoption when he was a baby because she felt she couldn’t provide for him.
