WPP Unite x The One Club

The One Club for Creativity and WPP Unite have joined to celebrate the creativity and potential existing within the Black LGBTQ+ community. The more diverse minds and imaginations we have in the advertising industry, the more inclusive and truly representative our industry’s creativity becomes. Black LGBTQ+ people are most underrepresented talent within the makeup of the global advertising community. This brief is about amplifying their voices.
