About the Event
Join us for The One Club Carolina's fifth (online) event on Wednesday, September 16, 2pm EST on Zoom!
You know you want it – to be the creative powerhouse behind the ads you've seen since you were a kid. But getting to play is not as easy as you thought it might be. You’ve got your degree in communications, but you're being told that's not enough. You see job openings, but none are for beginners. Agencies say they want more creatives of color, but from the looks of their ads and their websites, where are all the black creatives? And on top of it all, there's a pandemic. But the heart wants what the heart wants. And for you, it's to be a creative in advertising.
Presented by One Club Carolinas and hosted by McKinney, this panel is right for young black creatives who know they've got it. They just need to find out how to get to the agencies and people who are dead serious about building diverse creative teams. Led by McKinney Chief Creative Officer Jonathan Cude and moderated by 600 & Rising Founder Bennett D. Bennett, the panel will include VaynerMedia Creative Director Clarence Bradley; Goodby Silverstein Art Director Malika Reid; and Google Brand Studio Creative Lead Brandon Viney. And you, of course, because we want your voice to be heard.
