#MeToo has brought about a demand for better. And the marketing industry’s biggest abusers are being told that Time’s Up. And while that is progress, we still have an important question to ask: Just how many women’s wellbeing and career trajectories lie in their wake?

“The irony is not lost on me that as agencies, we say female equality matters to us, yet our actions or inactions say otherwise. As creatives, we inspire our clients to right wrongs and improve the human condition every day. I have a lot of hope that it’s these same people who will practice what we preach and take action to show we have her back.”

Caroline Dettman, Golin’s Chief Creative Officer

In partnership with The 3% Movement, SheSays and EvolveHer, Have Her Back is our progressive stance – and a call out to our entire industry – to welcome women back and move female creatives’ careers forward. Join us.

Our commitment is grounded in three actions

Golin is partnering with The 3% Movement to co-create “Manbassador” trainings – designed to help solve the question many men are asking, particularly in today’s climate: How do we support and advance women in the workplace?

Golin is committed to doubling the percentage of women on the ideator track, working towards Executive Creative Director roles, every year through 2020. We are looking for conceptual creatives in Chicago, NY, London. We have immediate open positions.

For the past five months, Golin has also created internal task forces and held town halls and focus groups to listen, talk and tackle the issues around sexual harassment, assault and inequality in the workplace. We believe that for this initiative to succeed, real, sustained changes to the cultures that have enabled these behaviors must take place.

“The 3% Movement has spent the last seven years understanding what separates creative cultures that are inclusive from those that are not. Here’s what we know: men must be involved in gender diversity efforts; all employees must be given a safe mechanism for honest feedback; having 25%+ women at the top self-corrects most issues combating women; and support for intersectional diversity cannot be postponed a moment longer.”

Kat Gordon, Founder of The 3% Movement
