Black In Advertising
Hey folks! I'm looking for a black mentor. Does anyone have any interest? Preferably another planner. I'm in comms. Happy to DM anyone remotely interested to tell you more about myself. -blake
Good people, I hope you are all faring well over there. Wanted to share this ‘Working From Home Best Practices Doc’—hope y’all find it useful. Sending positive vibes. Stay safe.
Should I be alarmed that I haven’t had a conversation with my director in a week +? (Any tips for coming to terms with being laid off for the first time?)

Just heard about the Black Enterprise Women of Power conference, and the attendee who had COVID-19. This is why other conferences are cancelling. Yes, you will lose money but is an outbreak worth it?
Y’all should come through. This is going to a great conversation with myself, Bonin Bough and Ryan Leslie. Sign up. Space is limited. https://events.blackbirdrsvp.com/tbwa-worldhealth-black-entrepreneurship-panel
See this being shared everywhere on LinkedIn and Twitter: If white women continue to be the face of diversity, then what is diversity?
This the perfect example of White people believing that equality for others is oppression for them. Simply inexcusable behavior that needs to be addressed and corrected. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/nbcblk/black-owned-business-featured-target-ad-inundated-racist-reviews-n1147366
Anyone else see what is going on with The Honey Pot today? Basically white women are in an outrage and giving negative reviews/ ratings about the commercial, not the product, saying it’s racist.
ColgateOpticWhite. Whenever I see this awful commercial I cringe. Its like a group of white creatives pulled in the “hippest” buzzwords/cultural references they could find. Thats not even the dougie!
My purpose for starting The Urban Key is to build an online community where African Americans are able to locate and participate in events where they are welcome, feel safe and can build together.
Hey y'all! Are there any professional organizations worth joining? I'm 3 years into my career and want to connect with people/learn more about the industry outside of my day to day. Based in Chicago.
