Al Sharpton Among Those Behind CBC Ad Industry Forum

By Kiran Aditham 

Our buds at Kiss My Black Ads have apprised us of “a public forum to take an in-depth look at the disparities minorities face in the advertising industry.” The forum, titled Shut Out: Evaluating Madison Avenue for Disparity in Advertising, Media and Creative Services, will take place Sept. 18, 10:30 am-noon, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Rev. Al Sharpton and others have collaborated on the event, which aims to help create solutions for a more diverse workforce and aid black ad agencies/media companies not getting their fair share of revenue.
