Gráinne Wafer is Global Brand Director for iconic Diageo brand Guinness.

Gráinne addressed the Unstereotype Alliance Summit, alongside further global companies such as Barbie, Unilever and Nandos, on why understanding local nuances helps accelerate progressive marketing.

The event focused on how progressive advertisements are more engaging and distinctive, and are better for brands, communities and society - and the theme was ‘Glocalisation: Intersectionality from a glocal perspective.’

Accelerating impact across the advertising industry

The Unstereotype Alliance Global Summit is a forum for members to share learnings, tools, strategies and inspiration to accelerate impact across the advertising industry.
