Fostering Gender Equality for the Next Generation

According to SeeHer’s Passing the Gender Equality Vibe Check with Gen Z: From Truth To Trust with Horowitz Research, women’s equality is a more important personal issue to gen Z than any other generation, and accurately portraying women in advertising is the number one thing gen Zs want from brands to improve women’s equality.

Industry leaders, influencers, and stakeholders joined together for the two-day Gender Equality Conference, May 2–3 in New York, to galvanize participants to commit to tangible actions that will transform the landscape of marketing, media, and entertainment, promoting gender balance and fostering a more equitable future for generations to come.

About SeeHer

If you can see her, you can be her.™

Despite recent advances, an unconscious bias persists against women and girls in advertising, media, and programming. To address this, the ANA launched the SeeHer movement in 2016.

SeeHer's mission is to increase the representation and accurate portrayal of all women and girls to achieve gender equality and drive business growth in the global marketing and media ecosystem, now and for generations to come.
