We are delighted that ogilvydo, Ogilvy & Mather's award-winning global editorial platform, is sponsoring this year’s Pride and Prejudice event on March 3rd. The event, hosted by The Economist, spans 3 cities around the world and the event will run for 24 hours catalysing fresh debate on the economic and human cost of discrimination against the LGBT community. Pride and Prejudice will challenge policymakers and industry leaders to rethink the future of the LGBT movement and its impact on business.
Confronting the growing divide between gay friendly nations and those still outlawing same sex relations, Pride and Prejudice will discuss what this contrast means for the future of business relations. Attendees will also hear the views and opinions of a number of guest speakers including Newsnight presenter Evan Davis, Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis and Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPP.
Having contributed to the creation of Ogilvy Pride, The Financial Times has recognized Annette King (CEO, Ogilvy & Mather Group UK) as a top ally in their Annual LGBT Executive Diversity Report for her commitment to fostering LGBT-inclusivity at the firm.
The only marketing or advertising agency to feature on the ally list, Ogilvy & Mather’s commitment to LGBT diversity is leading the way for agencies in the UK and globally.
