Ali Hanan is founder and CEO of Creative Equals, an organisation set up to address gender diversity in the creative industries.
She worked for the last 16 years as a copy/creative director at some of the adland's top agencies, but along the way noticed little was changing.
Now most of the industry's top agencies, including BBH, JWT, R/GA, AKQA, Mr President, AMVBBDO and more are signed up to Creative Equals 50:50 charter to transform the industry.
Some of the organisation's programmes include a 'Creative Returnships' scheme for mums (and dads) who have left the industry, a diversity charter for recruiters and the 'Be Awesome Night School', which provides affordable training for creatives.
