Break Stereotypes

Aug 10th '23

The Unstereotype Alliance is a thought and action platform that seeks to eradicate harmful stereotypes in all media and advertising content.


Convened by UN Women, the United Nations entity for Gender Equality, the Unstereotype Alliance brings together partners and seeks to collectively use the advertising industry as a force for good to drive positive change all over the world.


The Alliance contributes to empowering people in all their diversity (race, class, age, ability, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, language, education, etc.) to help create an equal world.


About the Unstereotype Alliance

Recognising the power of partnerships to accelerate progress, this industry-led initiative convened by UN Women unites advertising industry leaders, decision-makers and creatives to end harmful stereotypes in advertising.


The Unstereotype Alliance has been embraced by businesses and organisations championing the end of bias in advertising. The Unstereotype Alliance works to affect positive cultural change by using the power of advertising to help shape perceptions. Our members collaborate to help create a world without stereotypes, empowering people in all their diversity, whether that be related to gender, race, class, age, ability, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, language or education.


Code of principles

Members of the Unstereotype Alliance, realise their common vision, they commit to create unstereotyped branded content by:


  • Depicting people as empowered actors
  • Refraining from objectifying people

  • Driving gender balance in senior leadership and creative roles
  • Directly addressing unconscious bias, diversity and inclusion through training as a standard across the industry
