Cultivating Inclusion: How Agencies & Other Stakeholders Can Bridge the Gap Between Commitment and Action

Join us for a virtual discussion on Thursday, June 1 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. ET.

Despite many companies’ verbal commitments to inclusion, there is often a gap between their intentions and actions. In-house comms teams, the agencies that represent them, and the media they engage have an opportunity – and a responsibility – to ensure brands are doing more than just checking a box on performative DEI efforts. From the communications and content that are crafted, to the platforms leveraged, the voices featured, and the individuals who are doing the work, we’ll discuss the critical role agencies and other stakeholders play in cultivating and sustaining true diversity.

Panelists include:

  • Melanie Figueiredo, Vice President, Advertising and Sponsorship Sales, URL Media, a multi-platform network of high-performing Black and Brown media organizations

  • Abenaa Hayes, Founder & CEO, Elysee Consulting, a consultancy focused on cultivating inclusion through engagement

  • Rachel Huff, President, Victoire & Co, an agency search consultancy (moderator)

Tickets are available here.
