Download the Executive Summary

At Omnicom, we’re transforming our organization – and industry – through our relentless pursuit of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I). In 2021, we built on our momentum to challenge norms, combat injustice and dismantle systemic inequity. Our inaugural DE&I report is the result of the work that so many of us persistently pursued to make Omnicom better.

OPEN (Omnicom People Engagement Network) is how we build a more diverse, inclusive and equitable global organization. Our OPEN 2.0 action plan keeps us focused on achieving systemic equity through consistent, committed action. And our position as a global leader in marketing communications enables us to make change happen at scale.

Through culture, collaboration, client engagement and community, Omnicom is a place where people feel seen, heard and can create award-winning, innovative work.

This inaugural report is a manifestation of the promise and passions that DE&I has become at Omnicom, of the work that so many have done to push toward progress in this time of global reckoning of injustice and inequity.

Emily K. Graham,
Chief Equity and Impact Officer, Omnicom Group

DE&I is a vital part of our business, and it will continue to shape our growth and operations moving forward. We will remain relentless in our pursuit of building an organization and an industry that truly reflects the world we live in.

John Wren,
chairman & chief executive officer
