The One Club for Creativity and The 3% Movement, the advertising industry voice for gender equality and diversity overall, announced the 10 winners of their joint Next Creative Leaders global awards programme for 2018 at this year’s 3% Conference in Chicago.


Among this year’s winners is Gayatri Sriram, digital creative head at FCBUlka in New Delhi. Developed collaboratively by the organisations in 2015, Next Creative Leaders identifies and celebrates talented creative women who are making their mark with both great work and a workplace perspective on diversity that helps change the industry for the better. While most of the 2018 honorees currently work in the US, the programme has a strong global element with three winners located outside the US and half of this year’s winners originally from other countries.


The winners for 2018 are:

Nedal Ahmed, copywriter, Droga5, New York, NY, USA

Lama Bawadi, copywriter, Leo Burnett, Beirut, Lebanon

Maddy Kramer, art director, Saatchi & Saatchi, New York, NY, USA

Julie Matheny, associate creative director, Droga5, New York, NY, USA

Mietta McFarlane, copywriter, Droga5, New York, NY, USA (originally from Sydney, Australia)

Krystle Mullin, associate creative director, RPA, Santa Monica, CA, USA (originally from Toronto, ON, Canada)

Jessica Shriftman, art director, Wieden+Kennedy, New York, NY, USA

Gayatri Sriram, digital creative head, FCBUlka, New Delhi, India

Lizzie Wilson, associate creative director, McCann New York, NY, USA


Said Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club: “The One Club for Creativity has a long-standing commitment to providing programming that helps solve the industry’s diversity problem as opposed to just talking about it. We created our own Inclusion and Diversity Department nearly a decade ago, and are proud to support programs like Next Creative Leaders that identify, elevate and give voice to those who are making a real difference. They are the ones who are opening the door and inspiring the next generation of women who follow in their footsteps.”
