Here Are All the Black PeopleThe One Club's Here Are All The Black People is our highly anticipated annual multicultural creative career fair. The one-day event provides multicultural students, recent graduates, and creative professionals who are interested in exploring careers in advertising and design the opportunity to showcase their talent to top agencies in the industry.
HAATBP was created after a panel discussion between advertising greats, Jimmy Smith and Jeff Goodby, as they discussed the lack of diversity in the creative departments in advertising agencies. At which time, Jeff asked, "Where Are All The Black People?" Jimmy, Jeff, and The One Club decided to answer the question and launched the event, "Here Are All The Black People." HAATBP provides real-world solutions to the lack of diversity in the advertising and design industry's creative departments.
The One Club has established relationships with like-minded organizations that share our goal to increase diversity in the advertising, design, and media industries. These collaborations are important in strengthening our collective efforts to provide companies with a solution to the lack of diverse talent in the industry.
