Celebrating Women in the UK Creative Industries @ UK House

Mar 8, 2021

Next week’s UK House (16 -19 March), running alongside SXSW, showcases the best of UK advertising, art, tech, immersive technology, music and innovation. But there wouldn’t be such a celebration without so many strong, inspirational and influential women within the creative industries.

The campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose To Challenge‘, encouraging that ‘We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.’
