Episode 24: Bobi Carley, Head of Media and Diversity & Inclusion Lead @ ISBA

Planet Driven Brands Podcast Bobi Carley.

Bobi is a highly experienced media and advertising professional who I have had the pleasure of knowing for over 25 years!

Bobi is now heading up media at advertisers representative group ISBA and most interestingly for us, she is also the lead on diversity and inclusion, which within the advertising industry has been a particular ‘conundrum’ for many years and has most recently been brought into clear focus with the publishing of the ‘All In Census‘ which is a start in bringing the problem up close and personal.

Bobi’s journey is fascinating as she describes taking on her role by accident and how, through monumental impacts such as George Floyd, it has taken over. She takes us through the work being done, the pushback and the work still to be done in an industry fashioned on a network, which can only be described as ‘unhealthy’ in its longstanding approach to diversity.

There is so much to do, but there are small steps happening which will affect big change.

She’s excited that brands such as Nationwide, GSK and Mars have stood up to the challenge and is as excited by the collaborative approach, as she points out: “What’s brilliant about inclusivity and diversity is the non-competitive element to it; that everybody, really genuinely, wants to work to change this industry!”

So true, I love it. Count me in as an advocate!!

Bobi’s  like all our panellists, is passionate not only about her role but the role everyone is playing in creating a better future.
