Advertising, Disability and the Diversity Directive

A half-century after the Civil Rights Act and over two decades since the Americans with Disabilities Act, companies, and their advertising agencies still struggle to create messaging that accurately reflects a diverse make-up.

Josh will:

  1. Educate in an easy-to-follow yet engaging style on the size, scope and buying power of minorities and in more detail, that of people with disabilities, the largest minority group in America.
  2. Bring powerful stories and examples of the transformation of portrayal and inclusion of people with disabilities in advertising.
  3. Elevate the presentation with ideas on how attendees can increase connections with diversity and inclusion in their work and how inclusion is beneficial to club membership growth, program ideas, and community engagement.
