The Marcus Graham Project continues to fight for diversity in the advertising industry. Here’s the organization’s latest message:
The issue of the lack of diversity in the advertising industry is a serious matter. Earlier today we released the infographic above shedding light on the fact that 15% of the ad industry are people of color while our nation’s minority population is 37%. In order for our industry to be more reflective of the rich diversity that we have here in the United States, we need to continue to #TurnUp the conversation and share information on this important topic.
You can do this today by signing up for our Thunder Clap, which will combine the social media following of the supporters to send a UNIFIED MESSAGE to all of our friends and followers next Friday, Nov. 30th.
To do this we need to reach our goal of signing up 250 supporters to this effort. You can sign up via Facebook and/or Twitter to spread the word by…visiting the following link: https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/698-tunein-turnup
In addition, you can support our organization this coming week by participating in #GivingTuesday. We know that many of you are taking advantage of holiday savings today with Black Friday, tomorrow with Small Business Saturday and Monday with Cyber Monday. Please consider making a donation to our effort on Tuesday, Nov. 27th.
