Creative Equals is an award-winning organisation championing diversity and inclusion in the creative industries. In 2017, we launched the Creative, Digital + Media Equality Standards as a kite mark accreditation to give individual companies a D&I review, rating and, most importantly, a road map.
Many businesses understand their ‘why’, but this gives them their ‘how’ with a measurable, actionable framework across three pillars: ‘Culture’, ‘People’ and ‘Equality’, spanning all aspects of diversity (BAME, gender, neurodiversity, ability, LBGTQ, age and more).
Additionally, we have set up Creative Equals Certified, an accreditation for the recruitment sector, plus Creative Equals Voices to work with industry organisations and bodies to shape diverse juries and speaker line ups.
Aside from working with businesses to help them move forwards, our ‘north star’ is to double the number of women in leadership roles over the next 24 months, as just 12% of creative directors in the UK are women.
