It measures perceptions of how female actors are portrayed in the media by asking consumers how much they agree or disagree with four statements, which are then used to compile a GEM score. Hear more about this methodology and how several companies are using this to enhance their creative decision making power when crafting their ads and placing them in the right media relevant environment.

Supplier Diversity in Advertising and Marketing

A supplier diversity program is a proactive business program which encourages the use of women-owned, ethnic/minority-owned, veteran-owned, LGBTQ+-owned, disability-owned, and small businesses as suppliers. According to new ANA research, there has been a notable uptick in investment from the ad/marketing industry toward diverse suppliers in 2022 and that investment is expected to increase again in 2023. Benefits of investing with diverse suppliers include access to new/diverse thinking, having a supplier base that mirrors customers, and addressing systemic investment inequalities in the media and creative supply chain. This session will discuss challenges and opportunities for the ad/marketing industry investing with diverse suppliers.
