Today ADCOLOR, the premier organization dedicated to celebrating and promoting professionals of color and diversity in the creative industries, announced the lineup for the 2019 ADCOLOR Conference, including an intimate conversation with filmmaker and philanthropist, M. Night Shyamalan.
Hosted by entrepreneur and producer Tai Beauchamp, ADCOLOR will host their largest conference to date. Featuring over 17 sessions on five stages, packed with opportunities and panels to hear from leading advertising, tech and business executives, and personalities, who are changing the way brands, media and entertainment represent and honor diversity in all aspects of their practices.
“The theme ‘Take A Stand’ has infused every aspect of ADCOLOR 2019 with meaning, purpose and the intention to send everyone back into their companies and the world stronger and more confident to make the necessary changes to build a better and more equitable society,” said ADCOLOR Founder and President Tiffany R. Warren.
The organization also announced the 2019 class of ADCOLOR FUTURES, a program that chooses 30 of the best and brightest professionals out of 488 applicants who are one to three years into their career to attend the annual conference and awards show which will take place September 6th through the 8th at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles L.A. Live Hotel in Los Angeles, CA.
It was announced earlier this year that actor, director, producer and activist, Eva Longoria will be recognized at the 13th Annual ADCOLOR awards ceremony, as the 2019 Beacon Award presented by ADWEEK, the leading resource for the brand marketing and advertising community. The inaugural Beacon Award honors talent who uses their celebrity as a catalyst to change the status quo in the quest for diversity and inclusion. In May, ADCOLOR and Adweek partnered on the first Champion awards and celebration recognizing the fearless leaders and rising stars in marketing and media who embody ADCOLOR’s call to “Rise Up. Reach Back.” The 2019 ADCOLOR Awards will highlight and honor the achievements of African-American, American Indian/Native American, Asian Pacific-American, Hispanic/Latino and LGBTQ professionals, as well as spotlighting diversity and inclusion champions in the creative industries.
