In our continued efforts to foster a more diverse industry, we’ve realized that even with the best of intentions, many of the people we have come to revere have completely different hurdles and obstacles to navigating this industry. Any efforts to diversify need to take that into perspective.
So, on the evening of October 24th we will turn up the mic and give voice to those who are seasoned yet unseen. This discussion is like no other: you will leave with the truth, you will have actionable items to work with, and you will grow as a person. Please join us for this special conversation moderated by Wieden+Kennedy Creative Producer Tiffany Golden.
