Despite continuing racial issues in the U.S. and leaders in agencies and media organizations alienating women and multicultural individuals in the work place, our industry is still asking if we have a diversity problem.

The American Advertising Federation, in partnership with ADCOLOR, hopes you will join us for a 1-day mini-conference on the D&I issues still plaguing the advertising and media industry. Speakers and panelists will take a candid look at where we are, how we got here and what we can do to move forward.

9:30 am – The Latino Way: Rediscovering American Values
From an increase in the perception of corruption in government to the decline in education, a sense of pessimism is infiltrating U.S. society. Given their own experience with adversity, Latinos have a unique ability to show Americans how to survive and thrive in a changing world.

10:30 am – The Invisible Ones: All of Us
As the business case for D&I gains traction, some organizations overlook the stereotyping that multicultural employees deal with daily that make them feel like they don’t have a voice. In this panel, we will identify these issues and discuss best practices for overcoming them.

1:15 pm – The Invisible Ones: Women of Color
Much has been said for feminism as women continue to deal with office issues. The path for women of color includes bumps and curves that their counterparts aren’t hindered with. Hear the stories of women who have excelled despite these obstacles.
