Fightback: A business innovation podcast
The fight for the future of agencies with Karen Blackett OBE
In the opening episode of Fightback Series 2, Robin has the pleasure of speaking with the inspirational Karen Blackett OBE. Karen juggles two extremely senior roles at Group M and WPP with being a single mum and championing diversity and inclusion throughout the industry. Here, Karen talks about how WPP is in an evolution not a fight; the key learnings about leadership in a pandemic, her hope for more equity in top global roles, how diversity is good for the soul and for the bottom line and why now is the time for every organisation to put race on their agenda if we are to achieve sustainable change. It’s a call to arms and a fantastic listen, and we can all learn something from Karen’s authenticity, passion and experience.
