Asians in Advertising is hosting their yearly Breaking Barriers conference on May 3, 2024

I’ve been searching for a bilingual Chinese writer for some time now to partner with. At this point it feels like finding a unicorn. Anyone here worked with a conceptual writer not a translator?


Any Asian writers here?? I’m the only one at my ad school, and it’d be dope to connect


Hi, I'm an Asian student studying advertising. What has your experience been like as an Asian working in advertising agencies?


We all heard about black history month. Will a yellow history month be cool or offensive?


New CEO/CCO is Asian. Feeling empowered


Any male Asians , feel that they have been passed up for a role because they are Asian ? Feels like the Asian man dating effect spills over into corporate culture . Or am I alone n over thinking it?
