12:00pm - The advertising industry is at a moment of truth, and while most executives say they support creating a more inclusive industry, they often seem paralyzed about how specifically to drive change internally. Now, thanks to "A Call for Change," an open letter signed by more than 600 Black advertising professionals, a clear path forward has emerged. In this candid panel—featuring one of the letter's authors, two of its signatories and a CEO working to adopt all its guidelines—Adweek will encourage the most vital conversation of the moment: "What do we do now, and what happens next?"


3:00pm -  A special edition of Adweek Presents: The Way Forward with C-Suite leaders from Zola and more. We’ll reflect on how to properly engage consumers and address lifestyle changes along with authentic and impactful storytelling.

Adweek Opening Remarks

Slowing Down was the Accelerator we Needed

We don’t have to look much further than the brands that have been marketing during the Covid-19 crisis to realize that consumers need and crave more authenticity and connection from the companies that seek their loyalty. Businesses that are succeeding are going back to basics, honing in on brand purpose and reaching their customers in new and trusted ways. Join Randi Stipes, CMO of Watson Advertising & Weather; Developer Marketing, for a look at brands that are pivoting successfully during this time and how AI technologies can help your brand navigate the new normal.

Walking the Talk - Driving Purpose With Impact

The global COVID-19 pandemic is a pivotal time that’s putting company and brand purpose to the test, separating those that only say a lot from those that are making genuine impact. It’s never been more important for companies to embed purpose authentically, and channel business into a force for good, not just for growth. But what does an organization look like that has truly embedded purpose into everything that it does, and how can it be held accountable? 

Adweek sits down with Jane Wakely, Lead CMO of Mars, Incorporated, about the responsibility of brands to help shape a more inclusive, responsible and sustainable culture, and the role they can play in addressing some of the world’s biggest societal and environmental challenges, from climate change to the current pandemic.
