DigitasLBi, a global marketing and technology agency, will host The 3% Conference, The Representation Project, and Instant Census for a Super Bowl Tweetup during the game on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016. Participants will include female creative directors from across the U.S., including DigitasLBi, and 1,000 female consumers sourced from The Representation Project community to provide feedback on what ads are effective and appealing to women throughout the game via a text-message-based survey run by Instant Census.

3%’s Founder Kat Gordon, CCO Lisen Stromberg, and Social Strategy Lead Laurel Stark Akman will attend, along with Bay Area creatives and the team from The Representation Project. Last year, the Tweetup hashtags generated 59 million impressions on game day alone.

“We’ve been mobilizing ad women to live-tweet to brands (and their agencies) in response to Super Bowl ads for several years now. What’s revolutionary this year is we’re using emerging technology to enable 1,000 female consumers to join the chorus in a way that’s immediately measureable,” says Kat Gordon, founder of The 3% Conference. “We will know definitively within minutes which ads are resonating with women, which ads have alienated them, and why.”

“DigitasLBi SF is thrilled to host and participate in this movement on Super Bowl Sunday and we look forward to learning from the instant data from female consumers that comes through,” said Dave Marsey, EVP/Managing Director of DigitasLBi San Francisco.  “We’ve sent over 200 attendees to The 3 Percent Conference and have seen first hand how joining Kat’s movement is making real change.”

The 3% Conference is a movement changing the narrative around marketing to women and has helped raise the number of female creative directors from 3% to 11% in just a few years. For the third year in a row, The 3% Conference is partnering with The Representation Project (TRP), a cultural change organization that inspires individuals and communities to challenge and overcome limiting gender stereotypes, in hosting the Tweetup. The Representation Project created the popular campaigns #NotBuyingIt and #MediaWeLike, which inspire people to join together in celebrating good representations in advertising and merchandising, and to call out the bad. The addition of text-message survey software company Instant Census harnesses the power of SMS messaging to provide data in real time on how closely women are watching ads and making purchase decisions based upon what they see.

“Media is the message and the messenger, and the content of advertisements matter,” said Jennifer Siebel Newsom, founder and chief executive officer of The Representation Project. “It is because of conscientious consumers speaking up over the past few years that we have actually seen a shift in advertising during the Super Bowl and beyond. By being able to track and record feedback in real time, we can continue to advocate for ads that depict men and women as more than extreme and harmful gender stereotypes.”


Started as a passion project to spotlight a huge business opportunity in advertising—the lack of female creative leadership and its impact on connecting with an overwhelmingly female marketplace—The 3% Conference has grown exponentially since its 2012 launch. Today it is a full-fledged movement encompassing a 750-person, two-day annual conference in New York and one-day MiniCons throughout the world, along with a vibrant online community, an agency certification program, and a student scholarship fund.

Using film as a catalyst for cultural transformation, The Representation Project inspires individuals and communities to challenge and overcome limiting stereotypes so that everyone, regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation, or circumstance, can fulfill their human potential. Jennifer Siebel Newsom founded The Representation Project (a 501c3) in 2011 in response to the overwhelming public demand for ongoing education and social action in support of her first film, Miss Representation. Since then, The Representation Project has released Newsom’s second directorial film, The Mask You Live In, and become well known for creating popular campaigns such as #NotBuyingIt and #AskHerMore.
