The 3% Conference
Chicago, IL

The 3% Movement, advertising's leading voice on gender equality, diversity/inclusion, and workplace culture consulting, is heading back to Chicago's Navy Pier for the 8th Annual 3% Conference on Nov. 7-8, 2019. This year’s conference theme is: The 29%. Current research shows that only 29% of women hold creative director roles and since men only account for 17% of the audience at The 3% Conference, they're asking "where are all the men?" Which is why this year, The 3% Movement is setting out to have 29% of attendees be men, since gender equality involves everyone. More than 1300+ attendees from the worlds of advertising, marketing, PR, tech, non-profits and more come together to experience two days of keynotes and master classes from leaders/professionals from various industries; four professional tracks, including: Leadership, Emerging Creative, Creative Director and How-To, plus interactive activities. Founder Kat Gordon has been named Advertising Age's Visionary of the Year in 2018 and inducted in the Hall of Diversity at Advancing Diversity Honors in 2019 for her 8-year crusade illustrating that diversity = creativity = profitability. At The 3% Conference, you'll hear from 85+ speakers, half of whom are speakers of color, and experience spirited networking and true community. This business event has transformed careers and lives, and leaves people challenged to do better. To register or for more information visit: and use code MULTICULTURAL19 for a 10% discount.
