Creative Spirit is an initiative run by Droga5 in partnership with Break Thru People Solutions. The partnership recognised very early that people with a disability were seriously under-represented in the creative industry. The aim of the program is that by 2021, every creative company in Australia will commit to the trial of a person with a disability. The net result being that the creative community becomes the largest employer of these extraordinary people.
Creative Spirit’s beginnings started when Break Thru placed one of their jobseekers, Lloyd, in an administration role at Droga 5 in 2008. Such was the success of the placement that Droga 5 CEO, David Nobay sought, through a partnership with Break Thru to extend the program to all areas of the advertising/marketing industry – some 32000 businesses across Australia. The initiative has extended worldwide with agencies in nearly all continents.
