Speaking up for Gender Diversity on International Women’s Day


Published on March 8, 2019

As part of McCann Central’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, we celebrated International Women’s Day on March 8th by hosting a talk by Nicky Bullard, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer at MRM McCann, and Chair of the Direct Lions Jury at Cannes Lions in 2018.

On a day that marked the social, cultural and political achievements of women, as a highly acclaimed creative leader Nicky Bullard shared her thoughts and experiences concerning her inspirational journey from a female leadership perspective.

Supporting International Women’s Day built on McCann Central’s strong record of promoting an all-inclusive workplace. Initiatives such as Stepping into the Spotlight (SITS), which pledges to develop women across all levels in the agency, and the creation of a Women Leadership Programme, shows that McCann Central is at the forefront of the diversity and gender debate.

John Sanders, Chief Operating Officer, says: “We were delighted to welcome Nicky Bullard to McCann Central to share her experiences and insight. She is the latest in a long list of fantastic female speakers who have offered their perspective on the issues that impact us all and how we can all take positive actions to create an inclusive culture.”
