The world is changing, and with it agencies are changing too. From gender balance, diversity and inclusion, there are waves of progress happening across the board.
Brought to you by StopPress with support from the Comms Council, The Faces of our Industry, proudly sponsored by Google, is a celebration of the diversity found within our sector.
Although diversity and inclusion will always need to be improved, there is plenty of our industry to be proud of. The Faces of our Industry aims to flip the conversation on its head, and celebrate the amazing individuals we have in our sector.
This episode we chat to Melissa Taylor, GM agency sales at TVNZ, for whom a career in media wasn’t always the plan. After being told she wouldn’t get into an advertising course that only accepted 30 people, she applied – and was accepted. The rest is history.
Here, Melissa highlights the importance of gender diversity and strong female role models in the workplace, and shares her advice for young women coming into the industry.
