Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club, said:

“The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing programming that helps solve the industry's diversity problem as opposed to just talking about it. We created our own Inclusion & Diversity Department more than a decade ago, and support programs like Next Creative Leaders that identify, elevate and give voice to those who are making a real difference.  These are the women with will open the door and inspire the next generation of women who follow in their footsteps.”


Kat Gordon, founder, The 3% Movement, said:

“We’re so impressed by the talented women who have been named Next Creative Leaders in the past. They’re producing amazing creative work around the world that actually makes a difference.  It’s been exciting to watch this initiative grow into a global showcase for modern creative leadership.”


To make Next Creative Leaders as open and accessible as possible, there is no fee to enter the competition.  Entrants are judged on four-to-six pieces of creative work, their background and information about how they — and their work — are pushing the industry forward and making a positive contribution in terms of diversity, mentoring and advocacy.  Winners will be selected by a jury of top creatives and diversity advocates, including past Next Creative Leaders winners.
