A Diversity Report for the Advertising/Marketing Industry

In mid-November ANA released its third annual diversity report for the advertising/marketing industry. The report, based on three separate studies among ANA members, concludes that women overwhelmingly comprise the bulk of the marketing industry's workforce and at the senior leadership level, female representation is now likely at an all-time high. However, ethnic diversity continues to be poor, especially for African-American/Black and Hispanic/Latino. This session will dive into the detailed findings of the report and also cover action steps offered by ANA members that have helped their companies improve diversity within their marketing departments.
