NDA launched our Media Pride content and events initiative earlier this year to provide a year-round platform to celebrate those within the LGBTQIA+ community working in advertising & marketing.

To celebrate its launch, on the 21st of September New Digital Age will host the Media Pride lunch, bringing together the LBGTQIA+ community and allies in person featuring some of the community’s leading lights.

The first partners for the event to be announced are Publicis Groupe and Diversity Media Sales.

The New Digital Age Media Pride lunch takes place on Thursday 21 Sep 2023 12:00 – 16:00. It will feature an introductory panel discussion with leaders from the community discussing both opportunities and challenges in the sector, followed by an afternoon of eating, drinking and celebration.

Tickets are available here.

NDA will next week be launching its report, in partnership with Outvertising,  Blueprint for Change: Making LGBTQIA+ Inclusivity Part of Your Brand’s DNA, which will be published by NDA and Outvertising.

The report, based on the insight of leaders Boots, Outvertising, Stonewall, Mediacom, Publicis, Conscious Advertising Network, and ISBA, to help advertisers and their agencies navigate the path to inclusivity.

If you are interested in attending or sponsoring the event then please get in touch with
