NETWORKING BREAKFAST (9:00-9:45AM)
WELCOME AND INTRODUCTIONS (9:45-10:00AM)

I. ANHEUSER-BUSCH'S BRAND ESTRELLA JALISCO'S "SHARE FOR GOOD" CAMPAIGN (10:00-11:00AM)
In this session, Yonathan Bendesky, will share insights behind the 2019 ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards Hispanic Grand Prize Category winner, Anheuser-Busch brand Estrella Jalisco. As a relative newcomer to the American beer market, Estrella Jalisco aimed to drive awareness while having a real, positive impact. Noticing that the autocomplete function when typing "Mexicans are..." revealed negative results, the brand embarked on a mission to change that. By creating original content and sharing it in bespoke pages and closed Facebook groups, they successfully hijacked Facebook's search algorithm to redefine what "Mexicans Are..." turning negative comments into beautiful art that truly represents Mexican Americans.

Speaker:
Yonathan Bendesky, Sr. Director Mexican Imports – AB InBev/Anheuser-Busch

II. MICROSOFT CHANGING THE GAME (11:00-12:00PM)
For years, the company has been championing accessibility and inclusion in tech. From inspiring young girls to stay in STEM, to developing technology to aid those with dyslexia, visual and audio impairment. However, the video game industry has long ignored players with disabilities. With the launch of the Xbox Adaptive Controller, Microsoft wanted to challenge the gaming industry and put accessibility at the forefront of product design. Hear from Stacey Terrien, Director of Global Advertising at Microsoft about the campaign behind the launch of this new device, which also won in the 2019 ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards in the Significant Results and People with Disabilities categories.

Speaker:
Stacey Terrien, Director of Global Advertising - Microsoft

IV. QUEER CITY: A CNN EXPERIENCE (1:15-2:00PM)

P&G showcased their documentary, "Out of the Shadows," which told the story of a group of gay and lesbian employees at their Cincinnati headquarters. BMW brought forward a photo booth experience to highlight the "safe space" that many LGBTQIA+ individuals sought out.
