February 9, 2021, NEW YORK – ADCOLOR, the premier organization dedicated to celebrating and promoting professionals of color and diversity in the creative industries, today announced it will be celebrating Black History Month with a content series presented by Facebook. The series, titled “The Black Voice: Upheld, Included and Heard”, will tackle the topic of inclusion from three distinct angles, exploring how attendees can shift from awareness to concrete action.
Each session will be led by trailblazing leaders, creators, brands and agencies who are advancing their industries and creating much-needed progress in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion. Attendees will walk away with steps, tools and processes they can use to start making changes today.
The three-part series will include the following sessions:
February 11 | 6:30pm ET: Cultural Appropriation in the Process
What can the community do to respectfully elevate culture in media? How can brands integrate the very cultures and creators that inspire their creative work? Who are the people and brands that have done it well?
February 18 | 6:30pm ET: Equality in the Creator Economy
How can influencers know and demand their value? How can companies ensure they are being fair and equitable partners when engaging creators, especially people of color?
February 25 | 6:30pm ET: Supporting the Black Voice
How do we represent black voices authentically in the mainstream? How can brands sustain a commitment to black audiences and black-owned media?

Warren, Founder and President of ADCOLOR. “We are thrilled that our long-time partner, Facebook, is working with us to create our first-ever Black History Month content series.
