Working Dads?

Speaker(s): Karen Costello

Time: 12:00pm | Room: Forum

If there are "working moms," why aren't there "working dads"? Stupid labels, misguided assumptions, double standards, outdated policies and a bunch of other things that hold women back, and why better environments for moms can only come with better environments for dads too.

Karen has always considered herself a dreamer and an optimist. She believes in the power of creativity, loves to ask the question "What if?" and rarely says no to a challenge. After 25+ years in the business creating award-winning work across countless categories and bold "first- evers" for clients like Target, her latest challenge is being the first female CCO in The Martin Agency's history. She believes strongly in using creativity to impact culture — to make brands, the industry and the world better. She has worked hard to create and advocate for more female leadership roles, more equitable and humane work environments and has addressed local community needs by working on political campaigns and building volunteer workforces.
