On the third Wednesday of every month, AICP presents webinars highlighting organizations that exist to create opportunities across the spectrum of filmmaking, advertising and marketing for people of color, specifically the Black community. (To view the participating organizations from previous sessions, please click here.) As a major part of the AICP’s commitment to this mission, we are taking away the perceived barriers for why we can’t find diverse talent to fill our ranks. Every month, you will have an opportunity to invest in an organization that will make your company better and make good on those pledges to do your part. The webinars will be open to the entire industry, not just the AICP membership. The ultimate goal of these presentations is to facilitate the action required for companies across our industry to move towards lasting change. Consider these sessions your introduction. We are counting on you to dig in, act, and collectively create a more inclusive and equitable commercial industry.
If you there is an organization you would like considered for the monthly Zoom, please email Kristin Wilcha at email@example.com.
