The Past & Present of Female Creative Directors
This week The 3% Conference, a first-ever event for female creative directors, kicks off Thursday in San Francisco to celebrate females in creative roles, and the future we hold in this industry. But as some of us are getting ready to celebrate the future of female creative directors in the industry, Adage coincidently published their first edition of The Most Influential Women in Advertising , which largely takes a look at those who came before us.
In the feature of influential women, Adage included an infographic outlining landmark moments for women in advertising. The infographic includes milestone achievements for women in the industry such as the appointment of the first female creative director to groundbreaking female focused advertisements.
In spirit of the saying “you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been,” I’ve placed the infographic below for everyone to get a little bit of history and perspective on females in the creative industry before the start of Thursday’s conference where the future of females in the creative industry will largely be discussed.
But before I end this post, a shameless Addison Whitney plug – Tiffany Jonas, verbal branding manager at Addison Whitney, will be moderating a panel at The 3% Conference and will be live tweeting from the event.
