Leveraging Advertising & Communications For Equality

In 2018, P&G required that its ad agencies interview at least one female director for each new advertising project. The same year it also hosted the SheIsEqual summit with Global Citizen to advocate for the expansion of education, funding, and other opportunities to boost the number of women in media, marketing, and technology.

Below are some examples of the outstanding ways Procter & Gamble uses media and advertising to help tackle bias and motivate change:

Always produced “Like a Girl”, one of the most successful commercials of all time. Directed by Lauren Greenfield, The video changed the perception of the phrase so that 75% of people now believe it is positive as opposed to only 19% before.

#WESEEEQUAL

P&G launched their #WeSeeEqual campaign in 2017 to unite the entire company in its fight for gender equity. The centerpiece was a digital ad which portrayed men, women, boys, and girls defying gender stereotypes. AceMetrix ranked it 2017’s No. 1 ad focused on inclusiveness.

GENERATION OF FIRSTS

REIMAGINING CREATIVITY

At the 66th Cannes Lions International Festival, P&G debuted a series of innovative new creative partnerships that brings together innovators who embrace equality and inclusion.
