Pathways to Senior Positions and the C-Suite Level

Diversity on boards and C-suite senior leadership positions has not reached the levels of the multicultural growth in the U.S. population. In the 2022 ANA Diversity Report, senior positions in the industry are only 5.4 percent AA/Black and 8.3 percent Hispanic/Latinx, compared to 72.6 percent White Non-Hispanic leaders. The pathway to the top is often not clearly defined or a linear journey, with a lack of equal opportunity for BIPOC people. For those who aspire to enter or move up in this industry, what are the various skills and attributes needed? Join this inspiring diverse panel of executive leaders in the industry who will share their personal journeys and strategies to continue to move up and encourage the development of BIPOC leaders across the industry.

Reflections on the Past, Present, and Future: Growth Pathways for Black Talent in the Marketing and Advertising Industry

History can help us predict the future, but in many cases, the constant pressure to deliver results moves us from one present moment to the next without a chance to reflect and see what we can do differently to impact change. This discussion is a chance to pause and reflect on key historical events – most recently, the murder of George Floyd – and discuss what growth pathways exist for Black talent in the marketing and advertising industry today and in the future.

Supplier Diversity in Advertising and Marketing

A supplier diversity program is a proactive business program which encourages the use of women-owned, ethnic/minority-owned, veteran-owned, LGBTQ+-owned, disability-owned, and small businesses as suppliers. According to new ANA research, there has been a notable uptick in investment from the ad/marketing industry toward diverse suppliers in 2022, and that investment is expected to increase again in 2023. Benefits of investing with diverse suppliers include access to new/diverse thinking, having a supplier base that mirrors customers, and addressing systemic investment inequalities in the media and creative supply chain. This session will discuss challenges and opportunities for the ad/marketing industry investing with diverse suppliers.
