See It Be It is a tailored Cannes Lions initiative, aiming to improve the ratio of female leaders in agency creative departments by identifying and providing support to aspiring, highly talented female creative directors, by providing them access to great content, industry luminaries, and each other.
It's an experience that raises profiles, expands networks, builds resilience and confidence and accelerates participants down the path to leadership.
