The Media & Marketing Podcast: WPP's Karen Blackett

The Media & Marketing Podcast: WPP's Karen Blackett

In this week's Media and Marketing podcast, host John Reynolds interviews Karen Blackett, WPP country manager and former UK CEO, MediaCom.

Blackett discusses WPP's recent gender pay gap report and talks about why she thinks WPP is leading from the front on this issue.

She also discusses why there is "unconscious bias" in the ad industry and why she could be in favour of quotas to get more senior women in power.

Blackett also reveals she still suffers from discrimination in the industry and talks about her own plans for the future, including if she has ambitions to take over at the top at WPP.

Meanwhile, Patrick Herridge, UK managing director of MWWPR, reviews the latest news.
