Creative Session at A&P
Coinciding with Women’s History Month, we hosted a creative session, dedicated to women, at our A&P studio. Wary of creating a box-ticking exercise, we designed this session as the first of a series of open spaces for us to collectively call ourselves to account on bias and unthinking, and contribute to awareness. The session kicked off with an enlightening share from the Strategy team, exploring the origins of the gender gap. The Design team then facilitated a richly inspiring team-wide share of creative women. The session ended with a prompt, for team members to contribute practical ideas to turn these principles into actions, showing up in our growth as individuals, our capabilities as a studio, our co-creations with partners, and our contributions as citizens.
Let’s be conscious - today and every day.

Working with A&P
The world we’ve been given to solve. It’s a phrase as big as your horizons. The brands and visionaries we work with are worlds in themselves. We shape and strengthen them. But we – brands and A&P – working together, look at other worlds too. Climate change, sustainability, community, responsibility, love. Design is an energy for good and we have big horizons when we think about what it can do.
