Here are all the black people

A multiculture career fair

Our Mission

We all win when we cultivate work environments where diversity of thought, experience, education, talent, and culture are encouraged to flourish. We win when we acknowledge that the best ideas are often born out of a team with diverse perspectives. When we work together to embrace diversity and create a culture for everyone to bring the best aspects of ourselves to work, we create a better company.

The One Club, along with our partners, champion this belief and each year we present "Here Are All The Black People" as a forum for the next generation of diverse creative professionals to showcase their creativity. These students, recent graduates, and transitioning professionals travel in force to this event demonstrating their desire to gain entry into our industry. Courageously, they present fresh ideas to the best agencies and creative leaders in the industry.

About the event

During this one-day event, participants have unprecendented opportunities to interview network, learn, interact with and gain invaluable knowledge from top creative professionals.

The 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.

During this one-day event, participants have unprecedented opportunities to interview, network, learn, interact with and gain invaluable knowledge from top creative professionals, as well as attend portfolio-building workshops, portfolio reviews, and participate in our popular live "elevator" pitch, which awards the winners with interviews with all of the sponsoring agencies. Many participants have walked away from the event with a second interview or a lead to an internship opportunity.

HAATBP is fully sponsored by agencies and companies looking to hire diverse creative talent. For sponsorship information, please contact Stefanie Smith at
