In honor of International Women’s Day (IWD), Omnicom agencies and employees around the world will gather to recognize and celebrate the progress being made towards a more gender-equal world.
This year’s theme, “Break the Bias”, acknowledges both the deliberate and unconscious bias that makes it difficult for women to move ahead. It marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. At Omnicom, we seek to break the bias beyond IWD by empowering women year-round and recognizing the richness and intersectionality within this community.
Below are highlights of initiatives happening across the Omnicom network. If you have any questions about a particular Omnicom event or inquiries on how to get involved, please reach out to Amanda Granath at [email protected].
Omniwomen, Omnicom’s employee resource group dedicated to increasing the influence and number of women leaders throughout the Omnicom network, will host programming throughout the month of March to bring together its members who identify as women and their allies in an open and supportive environment for observance and learning.
On March 8 at 11am EST, Omniwomen Global will invite guest speaker, Indra K. Nooyi, former CEO and chairman of PepsiCo, to unveil her newly launched book: “My Life in Full: Work, Family and Our Future”. During this session, Indra will dissect the events that shaped her life, provide insight into how she became the first woman of color and immigrant to run a Fortune 50 company, and surface the difficulties that came with managing a demanding job while growing a family. You can find detailed information about the event and how to register here.
