Every quarter, our Inclusion, Diversity & Equity Group hears from an external guest speaker to challenge and inspire new thinking

Our Inclusion, Diversity & Equity Group works towards building a digital advertising industry that is for everybody. Open to all IAB UK members, the group meets quarterly and focuses on how to improve workplace culture and make diversity and inclusion a priority across our sector. At each meeting we hear from guest speakers, share initiatives delivered by members of the group and collaborate to produce best practice content.
