The July magazine has landed with an in-depth look at what’s behind the dearth of women in leadership positions.

We speak to industry leaders such as Michael Rebelo, CEO at Publicis Groupe AUNZ, on the issue of diversity and what needs to be done to improve it.

We also catch up with female leaders, such as Sara Wyse and Sharyn Smith, on how to get more women to the top of the leadership chain.

We also zoom in on the parental leave policy of the major companies across creative, media and publishing, to see how they support women who need flexible working hours more often.

To tackle this month’s cover, we enlisted Thinkerbell which came up with a bold, simple cover to represent the issue.

Here's what else is happening in the July edition:

This month we also look at the wonderful world of adtech. We caught up with the likes of Adrian Farouk at Digitas, Andrew Frank at Gartner and Clay Gill at The Trade Desk for their thoughts on the adtech space.


Better Worplace 
This month we introduce a new feature, Better Workplace. In recent months, AdNews has focused on the mental health of agencies and in this segment we look at how they’re designing their offices to support a healthy working environment. 


The Work
We speak to Westpac’s head of group brand Jenny Melhuish about the bank’s first campaign following the banking royal commission. The spot focuses on a family going through divorce and was created by DDB Sydney. 


Meet the Team
In this month’s Meet the Team we catch up with David Fox, CEO at Ogilvy Australia. Fox talks us through the agency's latest push into consultancy and warns the big four might not be the best environment for creativity.


Adland Secrets
A CMO lets us in on what marketers want from agencies, how the role has changed and how much power they really have. 


Creative Review 
We ask Jenny Mak from Ogilvy, Rebecca Carrasco from Saatchi & Saatchi and Rebecca Morris from DDB Melbourne for their thoughts on ads that bring back old favourites.
