Do TV Networks, producers and advertisers have an ethical obligation to portray various multicultural groups fairly? Join the American Advertising Federation in partnership with Shocase, Inc. for a panel discussion with ad professionals, academics, policy influencers and media executives as they examine the effects of today’s television content on society, specifically the perceptions created in the minds of younger audiences and the repercussions of these portrayals.
