Looking forward to a world beyond categories
DDB had 16 jurors at the Festival, six of them women, including Glass Lion Jury President, Wendy Clark.
“The Glass Lions Award at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity seeks to recognize gender equality in work that knocks down stereotypes and strives to build positive imagery, impact, and action in the world. In theory, I look forward to a time when we don’t have to have this category,” Wendy noted, “a time when the world and our work is equitable, inclusive and just. That said, I recognize that this time is many decades away so, for now, as Jury President it’s my job to make sure that we uphold these ideals and truly elevate and celebrate work that is driving all of us to a better place.”
