Young Creatives Denmark is an organisation that supports and inspires the next generation of talent. In 2019 they started an initiative called YCD Creative Talks. The first of these was “Women in Focus” where they invited the Ministeriet for Kreative Reklamekvinder (Ministry for Creative Advertising Women) co-founders, Clare McNally and Clara Prior-Knock, as well as Anne Møgelvang (Global Comms Design Director, LEGO), to talk about their careers and thoughts on improving gender equality in the creative industries.
This inaugural event was held at Artefact on 8 November 2019. Each speaker shared their personal journey, tips for managing a successful career, and suggestions to support better representation. Key insights included finding not just mentors, but champions to boost your career; being public about your creative success, and stepping out of your comfort zone to experience growth and change.
Hopefully, Denmark's young creatives were inspired to not only reach for the stars personally, but also to work towards a more balanced and fair industry going forward. Thank you to Camilla Dannevig Hansen & the rest of the young creatives crew for inspiring talks, great input from the audience, and late-night wine and pizza! The future is bright! ️
