Diversity

In our club, promoting diversity in advertising isn’t about which stock photo you use in your client’s marketing piece. It’s about creating an advertising community and workforce that’s diverse in every sense of the word.

Our goal is to promote inclusiveness and fairness throughout the marketing and advertising process – from employment and career advancement to competition and compensation for creative services and media buys. We are working to increase the ad industry’s pace and investment in multicultural marketing and workplace diversity to help our community compete in a
global marketplace.

On a national level, the AAF hosts multicultural marketing conferences, provides research on industry diversity and multicultural marketing practices, corporate scholarship, intern and educational outreach programs, and issue forums for lawmakers.

Locally, AAF – Louisville provides programs that educate our membership, community, and students about the opportunities in advertising that they may have once thought out of reach. We host seminars and provide scholarships that prepare the industry’s future leaders so they recognize the importance of a diversified workforce and multicultural marketing’s impact on a company’s bottom line.
