Why We Exist

This is a massive opportunity for experts across many industries to reach diverse audiences and provide insight to brands on how to resonate with culture authentically. Because despite the countless post-2020 promises and commitments, or the immense economic and cultural contributions that diverse communities make to mainstream culture, we still lack diversity in executive leadership, ownership and equity in the platforms critical to creating real change for the world’s underserved communities.

Four days of panels, breakout sessions, webinars and networking that will draw a crowd of multicultural diverse professionals to downtown Manhattan, ready to engage and drive action. Join us for the kind of tough conversations the industry often is afraid to have out in the open.

Topics Covered

We’ll cover everything from fighting data bias to equity in ad tech, from decoding the New Mainstream to capitalizing on corporate responsibility. Our experts will convene across our five stages: Innovation, Creativity, Advertising, Health Equity, and the Main stage. Our schedule is constantly growing and evolving – keep checking the schedule.
