Inclusion, Diversity & Equity in Practice
At the IAB, we have worked with our ID&E Group to develop a showcase of standout initiatives that are driving greater inclusivity in the digital advertising industry.
By sharing ideas and inspiration, we hope to build a better, more equitable industry that appeals to diverse talent and makes us all stronger.

We have pooled the experience and advice from our Advisory Group to share with the wider industry. The result is our Inclusion, Diversity and Equity group "How to guides”, simple one-pagers that shorthand our learnings so you can save time and get on with making a difference.
