Why is gender stereotyping still such an issue for advertisers? Aline Santos encourages companies in the APAC region to come together to unleash creativity and eliminate stereotypes in advertising. With a focus on gender equality and intersectionality, her talk addresses the economic and social cases for ‘unstereotyping’ ads and the promotion of progressive portrayals of people, especially at a market level.

Aline’s talk includes examples of success stories, tangible business results, best practices, and regional insights as well as tips on how to bring about change from the grassroots up.
