About this event
Our increasingly digital world has made it difficult for us to establish a divide between work and life. With more flexible and remote work opportunities, it's difficult to resist responding to emails at all hours of the day. Needless to say, the lines are blurry.
This discussion will explore work-life balance and the ways our inspiring panelists have adapted to this new paradigm shift. They'll share experiences of how they've managed their own work-life balance, break down the challenges they've faced, and offer tips on how to tackle yours.
The Other Box will be joining this stellar line-up to talk about our experiences in work-life balance - sign-up below and come say hello!

"The Gender Debate In Agencies Is Over"
Last year former Saatchi & Saatchi Chairman Kevin Roberts lost his job after denying that sexism was an issue in the advertising industry. His comments made headline's all over the world. Was the outrage justified, or did he have a point? That's the question we'll be tackling at the first School Of Thought debate.
Gender diversity is a hot topic in every industry, but in advertising, it's even hotter. Just 11% of the world's creative directors are female, and London agencies fair only slightly better at 14%.
The Other Box will be joining some of the industry's biggest names to thrash out this topic in a lively debate on Thursday 25th May from 6pm.
In 2017, diversity and inclusion is a hot topic for discussion amongst companies, but how do we identify the key why's and how's of cultural diversity?
In this panel discussion, The Other Box will be teaming up with General Assembly and other key influencers in the London business scene who are at the forefront of cultural inclusion. We'll discuss why diversity in cultural backgrounds has a positive impact on companies - and ultimately a beneficial contribution to our economy - and how you can pioneer diversity where you work, no matter what your position.
