On the decision to partner with Advertising Week APAC for the Future is Female Awards, Sarah Tucker, head of APAC Marketing – marketing solutions, enterprise at LinkedIn, said: 

“Global LinkedIn data illustrates that women represent 41.8% of all workers but only 32.1% of senior leadership (Director+). As a result, we’re on a mission to understand this gap in female representation and how we can help make a difference for generations to come. It’s initiatives like Future is Female that help to identify, showcase and champion women across our industry and provide a platform for positive change. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Advertising Week APAC to launch the awards here in Australia, which in its inaugural year has seen an outstanding calibre of submissions. It’s another example of the high level of emerging and experienced talent across the market, and I wish to congratulate all the Future is Female nominees and award winners.”

This week, Advertising Week APAC saw a continuation of interesting, informative, inspiring and thought-provoking sessions from some of the industry’s brightest minds. 

Media, agency and adverting industry folk returned to Sydney’s Luna Park on Sydney Harbour on Wednesday, and once again, the Mediaweek team was on the ground at a number of sessions throughout the day.
