Deepend launches gender equality report

By Briana Healey in Marcoms News on
Digital marketing and communications agency Deepend has partnered with the Australian Human Rights Commission to support its Conversations in Gender Equality report, which has been released to coincide with International Women’s Day.
Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Kate Jenkins, remarked that the research is the result of a 10-month project which saw her visit every state and territory, speaking to more than 1,000 people nationwide.
“The consultations confirmed eight compelling themes under the key pillars of violence against women, women’s economic security, and women’s voice and diversity in decision-making. These issues impact everybody in Australia, not just one demographic, so it’s important that we help bring them to life and put them on the public agenda,” she said.
“We also wanted to ensure that our findings were translated into content that could be easily reviewed and shared, and that is where Deepend’s pro-bono support has been critical. We also know they already champion women’s right daily, so there was excellent synergy for us.”
Designed by Deepend, the report and a raft of complementary digital and social assets will help raise awareness of sex discrimination and gender inequality throughout Australia, and highlight the daily struggles women face across sectors, including in the home, workplace and sport.

Kath Blackham, managing director of Deepend, added that the team is thrilled to be supporting this pioneering work.
“As a diverse team of digital innovators, Deepend is deeply passionate about supporting gender equality. We are champions of initiatives like Code Like A Girl and our own internal mentorship program has been designed to help promote and support rising talent and women in our industry,” she said.
“We are genuinely thrilled to have contributed to such an important project.”
