  • 🌟2018 Highlight #2 : Speaking at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in France🎙⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The Cannes Lions is where brands, ad agencies, tech and media platforms convene annually for events, networking, and their industry’s annual awards.  It’s very glamorous, with events strewn along a boulevard in the south of France, featuring key industry players and the odd celeb or two. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Attending this year as a speaker was a real trip as an academic who is used to presenting in dingy hotel conference rooms and university lecture theatres. And, most excitingly, because my PhD and subsequent work has often focused on influencing the advertising industry to foster more appearance diversity in media, and this event was giving me a platform to do just that.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was invited to speak on a panel this year hosted by @dove and @turner with @rebeccasugar @sophiabush @sophie.galvani @sheena0adams and Jill King from @cartoonnetworkofficial . We were there to talk about the role of media in shaping girls’ body image and children’s well-being, historically for the worse but hopefully for the better going forward, and a recent project some of us had been working on to disrupt this (more on that soon). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As the panel progressed, it was clear that the key to driving social change, better mental health and girls’ body confidence was going to come in part from women-led collaborations between creatives, media, brands, and science. And, it felt so good and reaffirming to have the opportunity to reflect on the fact that I am part of one of these partnerships. Hence, the Lions were another one of my highlights for 2018.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I share this story because I like seeing other women owning their successes, so I’m working on owning mine 💪🏼⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What collaborations have ignited your work this year?⁣⁣
