The UK’s most brilliant minds in the fields of advertising and marketing have been honoured at the 2022 Future is Female Awards.


Ten high-fliers, who have demonstrated “best-in-class” leadership throughout their careers, were awarded prizes by Advertising Week, with a judging panel drawn from experts throughout the industry.


Ruth Mortimer, the Global President of Advertising Week and Chair of the judging panel, said the talent shown by the winners was “quite incredible”. “These rising stars have not only excelled in their own careers but have improved diversity and inclusion in advertising and marketing for others too,” she said.


“All of us at Advertising Week are proud to put the spotlight on the amazing women in our industry – and we’re committed to celebrating their achievements to help set the tone for the future.”


The awards ceremony, which was held at Unit London in Mayfair, marked the start of this year’s Advertising Week Europe, which is themed around diversity, inclusion and empowering the next generation. 


The Future is Female is a year-round global initiative for Advertising Week, and this week’s event also features the designer Anya Hindmarch in conversation with Pinterest.
