RISE Takeaways: To break taboos, you have to be prepared to lose something

RISE Takeaways: To break taboos, you have to be prepared to lose something

The need to create an inclusive creative movement for positive change across the industry was at the top of the agenda at Creative Equals’ flagship event RISE 2019.

In an impassioned and wide-ranging opening speech Ali Hanan, CEO and founder of Creative Equals, urged the industry to come together to create a “creative holocracy” in the face of a nationwide “inclusion crisis”.

Citing data from Creative Equals which shows that 12% of women in the creative industries plan to leave the industry within the next two years, she urged the women in the audience to stay. She explained: “I believe our glory days are yet to begin. If we can bring diversity and inclusion to the heart of the industry, we can create an inclusive creative movement for good.”
