About 3% Conference
Before the coming of the 3% Movement, Women were only 3% of the total U.S. Creative Directors on AdWeek.com. This was business suicide as women have a high influence in consumer spending (80%) and social media sharing (60%). Using a mix of professional development, community and content, the movement has helped in increasing the number of women working as creative directors to 11%. It has also managed to provide agencies with a crystal clear road map on how to champion leadership and creative talent in women. The movement relies on a number of events to achieve this and they include an annual conference for two days, vibrant online community, student scholarship fund, agency consulting programs, business blog and live Super Bowl Tweetup.
