The One Club for Creativity has promoted Kasia Karolak into a newly-created role to lead its gender equality programming. As Gender Equality Program Manager, she will oversee all of The One Club’s existing programs and events on the issue and develop new initiatives. For the past two years, Karolak has played a primary role in developing the global Next Creative Leaders. A joint program from The One Club and The 3% Movement, Next Creative Leaders identifies, celebrates and gives a global platform to talented creative women. She also previously served as the club’s social media manager. “The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing global programming that helps solve the industry’s problems as opposed to just talk about them,” said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO. “We created this new position to strengthen and grow our gender equality initiatives throughout the year. In addition to her continued work on Next Creative Leaders, Kasia will develop new programming designed to further promote women into creative leadership roles.” One of those new programs is an inaugural gender equality conference slated for January 2020 in New York. The event, targeted at C-suite senior creatives, is being developed to help advance equality in the advertising workplace and foster a more gender-balanced industry.
