There's been a lot of talk about diversity in our industry but it's often around gender diversity. There were a few talks touching on the true meaning of diversity at Cannes Lions – what it means for concepts of gender, race, LGBTQ, religion and disabilities, and the fact that they can all be intersectional - and this one led by Getty Images was one of them. The importance of including this in our work means that there is true representation of our audience and what that means for society as a whole. Being truly diverse with our work is not only good for business, it's a social and moral imperative. This talk inspired me the most because diversity in its truest sense means that no one is left out, and it's a step closer to a more equal world.
