Organizations are taking a hard look at their diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) strategies and scrambling to make up for lost time. The diversity conversation in creative dates back six decades, but commitment and execution have failed time and again. Join Keni Thacker, diversity creative and chief creative officer, who helps companies bridge the intersectionality of diversity, culture, and inclusion, and Adobe’s Meg Moss for a conversation on how to make a meaningful, lasting shift to create new ways of working.

You’ll explore:

  • Where the industry has dropped the ball in its efforts to become more diverse
  • What strategies agencies and brands should adopt to create sustainable DE&I platforms
  • How organizations can assess and determine their strengths to make fundamental changes
  • How we can equip diverse talent with tools and opportunities to contribute to the creative field
