One of Johannes Leonardo’s core values as an agency is to be a living example of the world we want to create.  As creators we believe it is our obligation to attract and empower authentic, diverse people and perspectives.

As an agency that sits in an industry known for changing perceptions, we have an opportunity to not only play our role in creating a more just and equitable world but to help lead the way there. It is our obligation to encourage the brave conversations that lead to profound change, particularly within our own walls.

While we have always worked to diversify our agency and the makers with whom we work, it’s become clear that we can do better. We will do better. We will create and elevate work that not only reflects change but helps to bring about it in the world.

We are responding and partnering with 600 & Rising with their #CommitToChange call to action by transparently sharing our workforce data.

The below data is where we stand currently and we commit to sharing with our staff on a quarterly basis. We share this information with the understanding that we have work to do before we achieve our ambition to be a true living example of change.
