WPP’s commitment to anti-racism


WPP’s commitment to anti-racism

Racial injustice will not be tolerated within WPP – nor can we tolerate it in the world around us

On 17 June 2020, WPP announced a set of commitments and actions to help combat racial injustice and support Black and minority ethnic talent. Read about our progress so far.

Our commitments

  1. We will take decisive action on each of the 12 points in the “Call For Change” open letter to the industry from more than 1,200 Black advertising professionals; complete a fundamental review of our hiring, retention, promotion and development practices; and publish our racial diversity data.
  2. We will use our voice to fight racism and advance the cause of racial equity in and beyond our industry.
  3. We will invest $30 million over the next three years to fund inclusion programmes within WPP and to support external organisations.
