Approaching inclusion in advertising with confidence can be a challenge. But it’s crucial to make under-represented groups, like women, feel seen. How can brands bring diverse stories to the forefront that entertain and drive growth?

The speakers have unique perspectives on why feeling seen in advertising feels good:
