For the first time ever, Advertising Week decided to celebrate outstanding female leaders - the emerging stars of our industry - in their Future Is Female Awards. The winners were announced at Advertising Week’s Opening Concert on September 23, 2019, where the legendary TLC (“No Scrubs”, “Waterfall”, “Creep”) performed in front of thousands of their peers from the advertising and marketing industry. While not among the nine winners, BIC's Amera Lulu was the youngest finalist in the room filled with amazing industry all-stars.

“Now more than ever, elevating emerging stars, shining the spotlight on the rising generation, and recognizing those who are breaking barriers in industry historically dominated by men is vital,” said Ruth Mortimer, Managing Director of Global Education and Development at Advertising Week. “TLC did that when they broke through in the 1990s and are still doing it today.”

Mortimer chaired a panel of Judges that included Gina Grillo, CEO of The Advertising Club; Deb Josephs, Chief People Officer of Ampersand; Quynh Mai, Founder & CEO of Moving Content & Image; Monique Nelson, Chair & CEO of UWG; and Elena Sotomayor, Executive Vice President of Cárdenas Marketing Network.
