Creative Brief's To break taboos, you have to be prepared to lose something
Our flagship conference! Yes. It's time to RISE. Only 13% of creative director contracts are currently given to women (and they are paid 7% less than their male peers). This is why RISE exists to change that across the creative and tech industries. And, we're INCLUSIVE. For change to happen, we need everyone to be involved in the narrative. It's at the London Symphony Orchestra's home in Shoreditch, one of the most beautiful locations in town.
