Communications plays a pivotal role in creating social change. This is one of the reasons why I proudly support the UN Stereotype Alliance in the fight to eliminate negative stereotypes of women in advertising and communications generally,” Steve said.
The 16 speakers who are leading voices across a broad spectrum of industries including film, advertising, business, and government emphasised the need to tackle systemic stereotyping.
