The One Club and The 3% Movement have announced the winners of the 2019 Next Creative Leaders. The Award identifies and celebrates talented creative women who are making their mark with both great work and a workplace perspective on diversity that helps change the industry for the better. While seven of this year's honorees currently work in the US, the program has a strong global element with eight winners originally from other countries.
"The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing programming that helps improve the industry's diversity and gender equality," stated Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club. "We created our own Inclusion & Diversity Department nearly a decade ago, and are proud to 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."
