On winning the award, Sundeep Chugh, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Benetton India, said, “The WE Program (Women Empowerment Programme) is a long-term, Benetton Group sustainability programme aimed at supporting the empowerment of women worldwide. The #UnitedByHalf campaign was a part of this, and our way of changing society’s perspective, celebrating women as equal partners, and actively standing for her right to an equal life. It helps a lot when a campaign such as this is appreciated at a global awards platform such as the Clio Fashion & Beauty Awards and we hope that people will continue supporting and promoting the idea of women empowerment.”

Sajan Raj Kurup, Founder and Creative Chairman, Creativeland Asia Group, said, “With the #UnitedByHalf campaign, the Benetton India team rolled out a movement that seeks to involve both men and women in achieving equality of both genders in India. It was heart-warming to see the response to the campaign when we launched it – both in India and across the globe. What I’m really proud about is that true to the Creativeland way, this Silver has been won on a real piece of work on a global brand like Benetton.”
