The One Club for Creativity and The 3% Movement have selected their jury for the Next Creative Leaders program.
The 42 person jury includes Fabien Teichner, joint chief creative officer of Serviceplan France; Karen Costello, chief creative officer of the Martin Agency; Joaquin Molla, founder of The Community US; Sakshi Choudhary, associate creative director at Ogilvy New York; and Arem Duplessis group creative director at Apple.
Next Creative Leaders has been running since 2015 to celebrate talented creative women around the world who are making their mark with both great work and a workplace perspective on diversity that helps change the industry for the better.
The 10 Women nominees for Next Creative Leaders will be revealed at The 3% Conference in New York, November 8-9, 2018, where some of them will be speakers. Winners will be profiled on The One Club for Creativity website and The 3% Movement blog and the news will be promoted through the two organisations’ social media channels. They will also be invited to serve as judges for next year’s program, and may be asked to speak at future events sponsored by the two organisations.
“The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing programming that helps solve the industry’s diversity problem as opposed to just talking about it,” stated Kevin Swanepoel, chief executive officer of The One Club.
“We created our own inclusion & diversity department a decade ago, and support programs like Next Creative Leaders that identify, elevate and give voice to those who are making a real difference. They are the ones who are opening the door and inspiring the next generation of women who follow in their footsteps.”
Kat Gordon, founder of The 3% Movement, added, “We’re so impressed by the 30 talented women who have been named Next Creative Leaders in the past three years. They’re all producing amazing creative work that actually makes a difference. And to see this initiative grow into a global program, with six of last year’s 10 winners hailing from outside the US, that’s been so exciting. It’s really become a global showcase for modern creative leadership.”
To make Next Creative Leaders as open and accessible as possible, there is no cost to enter the competition. Entrants are judged on four to six pieces of creative work, their background and information about how they, and their work, are pushing the industry forward and making a positive contribution in terms of diversity, mentoring and advocacy.
