D&I Taskforce

About the task force

The WFA Diversity and Inclusion Task Force is a global platform of the world’s top marketers gathered to drive greater inclusion in our work and in our workplaces to accelerate the industry’s progress on diversity.

We convene brands, agencies and NGOs to create and curate the knowledge and resources needed to drive measurable change.

We help set and challenge the global industry agenda, and catalyze national initiatives to drive the change locally, so that diversity can thrive everywhere.
