Posted by Marc van Gurp | 2-10-2012 21:50 | Category: Awards, Corporate Social Responsibility, Design, Discrimination, Gender issues, Media

As working in the European advertising and media industry with a lot of contacts in the similar Anglo American world I know that it is a predominantly white business.
That what this new campaign from the AdColor Awards is about. Their mission is to celebrate and champion diversity in the advertising, marketing, media and public relations industries.

Their statement:

ADCOLOR® strives to create a network of outstanding diverse professionals and champions of diversity and inclusion by honoring their accomplishments and leveraging their stories as a road map for others to follow. By highlighting the achievements of African-American, American Indian/Native American, Asian Pacific-American, Hispanic/Latino, LGBT and other diverse professionals, students and diversity and inclusion champions, ADCOLOR® aims to inspire the next generation of diverse professionals.

This year’s awards are October 18-20th in Las Vegas.
