Hello, and thanks for taking part in our survey.

About this research 
This survey looks to understand experiences of people working in the UK advertising and marketing industry before and during the COVID-19 lockdown. It should take about 10 minutes to complete. 
 
This survey is open to anybody working in the UK advertising and marketing industry. All responses are anonymous. 

The research is being undertaken by timeTo, an alliance between the Advertising Association, NABS, and WACL, which has the ambition to end all forms of sexual harassment within the advertising and marketing industry. Therefore, some of the questions within this survey will be asking about experienced and witnessed incidents of sexual harassment within the industry. 
 
Sexual harassment is defined as "unwanted conduct of a sexual nature with the purpose or effect of violating someone's dignity, or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them." (Equalities Act 2010)
 
 
How the research will be used
The findings from this research will be used to inform and update the timeTo Code of Conduct which provides guidance for employers and employees. The research will also be used to inform advertising campaigns, and any assets developed for the initiative, including training which aims to change behaviours across the industry. 
 
The results will not be used to name and shame any individual or company. 
 
 
Anonymity

The data collection is being overseen by Credos, the advertising industry's think-tank which sits within the Advertising Association.
