MAKERS at London's Ad Week

//Tune in LIVE to watch some of the U.K.'s most powerful women take the stage on Monday, March 20, at 12:15pm EST//

Join AOL with Karen Blackett, Ruth Mortimer, Rachel Bristow and Sam Phillips, as they discuss their personal experiences and biggest challenges. They will also offer up motivational advice to young aspirational women striving for success.

MAKERS UK launched #MAKERSBreakthrough, an initiative to keep gender diversity at the top of the agenda and ignite change in advertising by showcasing stories of women in the industry that have broken through the glass ceiling. The initiative aims to empower young women to aspire to more senior roles in the creative and advertising industries and bridge the gap between gender divisions in leadership positions. Committed to their dedication on the subject, MAKERS collaborated with Women in Advertising and Communications London (WACL) to speak to some well known leaders.
