THE ADCOLOR CONFERENCE PRESENTED BY FACEBOOK, GOOGLE | YOUTUBE, MICROSOFT AND OMNICOM GROUP

The ADCOLOR Conference is the premier diversity gathering for professionals at all levels. We are a one-day and a half immersive event that convenes innovators, experts and thought leaders from multiple creative industries: advertising, marketing, media, entertainment, public relations and tech.

Last year, ADCOLOR asked our community to think about the past and decide what they want the future to be. We had our Moment of Truth.

This year, ADCOLOR asks what you’re willing to do about it.

Standing for something means more than liking and sharing or wearing a T-shirt. It means risk. It means sacrifice. When you truly declare yourself to be for what you’re for and against what you’re against, you may be misunderstood, mistreated, punished or labeled.

Stand anyway.

Because when the rules are designed to break you down, there is no choice but to break the rules.

At ADCOLOR, we will break those rules together. Because here, no one stands alone. We will drive change every day through education and accountability. Allies will drive change by using their privileges and platforms to empower and employ. We will force this industry to break its own rules and reform itself with some of that liberty and justice we hear so much about.
We will take a knee. We will keep climbing. And we won’t stop talking the talk and walking the walk.

ADCOLOR 2019 is about celebrating brave moves and inspiring more. This is a year of action. This is our time to Take a Stand.
