Watch live at 11 a.m. EST: Ad Age Town Hall on giving a voice to the Asian community
A discussion on the AAPI experience in the advertising and marketing industry.
Pandemic-fueled racism against Asians and Asian Americans is on the rise, stoked by disinformation from high office. Amid a movement for racial justice that is not centered on them but must include them nonetheless, Asian, South Asian and Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) marketers must navigate experiences ranging from victim to ally and everything in between.
Join Ad Age for a frank discussion with Asian and AAPI industry leaders about how the industry needs to change to make their voices heard.
Among the topics being discussed:
• The realities of the AAPI community today
• Barriers to internal representation
• Understanding and connecting with the community
• What does inclusive marketing look like?
