Diversity — going beyond the obvious

Talk/Panel /Friday/October 21/1:00 PM

Description and details

Your mission: Inspire every home in the United States to take one single action.

Where do you start? How do you reach the many diverse audiences across the country? That was the challenge for the creative partners from Reingold, Culture ONE World, and TDW+Co. in the months and years leading up to the 2020 Census.

Embracing diversity and giving a voice to underrepresented communities is a goal for many creative professionals. Translating those aspirations into meaningful connections can sometimes be a challenge. The work to inspire millions of Americans to respond to the decennial census — as well as other creative campaigns — has provided actionable insights for creating such connections.

Join us for a conversation about making creative work more inclusive and relevant to diverse audiences. As a creative community, pushing beyond the obvious can help us all grow — and find an authentic voice.

This event was put together in partnership with Reingold, Inc. with support from Culture ONE World and TDW+Co
