WHY DOING THE RIGHT THING IS ALSO THE RIGHT THING TO DO

TIM LINDSAY
Our business needs to transform its lack of diversity and senior gender balance. Social justice aside, this is because homogenised groups produce homogenised thinking. We need to look in new places for fresh talent (D&AD Shift program), promote the interests of women to avoid a catastrophic talent drain (Google and D&AD's Rare program) and move our understanding of what constitutes creativity out of its existing narrow confines into the wider world of modern enterprise (D&AD Impact). Why? Because, as we all agree, good work creates better outcomes - commercially, socially, culturally, politically, environmentally. In the end, it's why we're all here.
