H+K launches programme to champion female employees

H+K is furthering its commitment to supporting female employees by launching the H+K HER (Helping Executives Rise) programme.

Created to respond directly to feedback from staff of both genders, as well as learning from other organisations, the programme is designed to provide information, inspiration & support to female employees as they develop throughout their careers.

At launch it will consist of:

  • A Mentorship programme for women in the consultancy with a mix of both female and male mentors from across the organisation
  • HER Views a platform for information and inspiration sharing
  • Meet HER, a programme of events that showcases women in business
  • SpeakHER a focused drive to increase the visibility of our own female talent within the industry

“Without diversity in thinking; brand storytelling falls victim to ‘pattern recognition’. We see the world through a single point of view, and that point of view alone. In order to avoid the perpetuation of the pattern it’s important that women are represented at every level of seniority in all creative fields” said Richard Millar, UK CEO and Global Chair of Creative Strategy

Lars Erik Grønntun, Chairman & CEO, Europe, the Middle East & Africa added “We are proud that our leadership teams in both the UK and broader EMEA region are evenly split between men and women, but we recognise there is more to be done; we are committed to ensuring that there is equal gender representation in the creation and recognition of the work we produce for our clients, and that our people are empowered to meet that challenge.”

In addition to the launch of the H+K HER programme, H+K is also proud to be working alongside the Dazed Group to present Female Firsts; an initiative which launches at Cannes Lions 2015 and will champion female directors in the film industry.
