M&C Saatchi Worldwide is to conclude its first international Diversity & Inclusion week which follows on from the success of its London-only edition in 2018. During the week, over 30 events took place across its 29 international offices, including Berlin, Jakarta, Johannesburg, London, New York, Sydney and the UAE.
Moray MacLennan, M&C Saatchi Worldwide CEO said: “Making D&I week International is essential. It forces us to think about what Diversity and Inclusion means in different cultures and regions of the world. Essential, because it means different things in different places.”
This week-long series of events featured talks from ground-breaking creatives such as Emerging Scene in the UAE, champions of Emirati female artists, a ‘Five Days of Difference’ themed event in Johannesburg and cultural food exchanges in Jakarta. London participants also attended a headline talk with industry visionary Cephas Williams on his 56 Black Men Project.
Taking place between Monday 23 and Friday 27 September, these events also complement M&C Saatchi Worldwide’s membership of the Inclusive Employers Network alongside Macmillan Cancer Support, Nestle and Transport for London.
