Where Are All The Black People? — The One Club for Creativity‘s annual diversity conference and career fair — is exactly five weeks away, and we couldn’t be more excited! And if you’ve been thinking about making new industry connections in this ever-evolving world of advertising, we definitely want you sharing in on that excitement!
This past year has seen a lot of industry changes — think about how many agencies let people work from home before COVID? The uncertainty of 2020 has made way for the opportunities of 2021, especially for people of color and their allies, and so many companies are making room for those opportunities.
“‘All of the agencies at WAATBP are there to find new, diverse voices for our industry — take them up on it.”
— Noel Cottrell, CCO, VMLY&R, Kansas City

See all of those logos at the bottom of this email? These represent the many companies that will be sitting down with you to discuss your work during our Portfolio Reviews, as well as hosting virtual Recruiting Booths that will allow you to network with their team and learn what they’re all about.
Add these to a series of amazing workshops, panel discussions, and keynotes — all of it virtual so you can participate from anywhere in the world — and you’ll know why WAATBP is not to be missed! Register for free today and see you September 29 and 30!
