The One Club and The 3% Movement are calling for entries for their joint Next Creative Leaders program, celebrating talented creative women around the world who are marking their mark with both great work and a workplace perspective on diversity that helps change the industry for the better.
"The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing programming that helps solve the industry's diversity problem as opposed to just talking about it," said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club. "We created our own Inclusion & Diversity Department a decade ago, and support programs like Next Creative Leaders that identify, elevate and give voice to those who are making a real difference. They are the ones who are opening the door and inspiring the next generation of women who follow in their footsteps."
To make Next Creative Leaders as open and accessible as possible, there is no cost to enter the competition. Entrants are judged on four-to-six pieces of creative work, their background and information about how they - and their work - are pushing the industry forward and making a positive contribution in terms of diversity, mentoring and advocacy. Winners will be selected by a jury of top creatives, including past Next Creative Leaders winners.
The 10 winners will be revealed at The 3% Conference in New York, November 8-9, 2018, with some of them in attendance to speak. Honorees will also be invited to serve as judges for next year's program, and may be asked to speak at future events sponsored by the two organizations.
The extended deadline for entries is August 26, 2018.
