The AAF’s 2021 Virtual Most Promising Multicultural Student Awards Ceremony and Recruiter’s Expo, Jan 28-29
Since 1997, the American Advertising Federation (AAF) began the Most Promising Multicultural Student program to connect the advertising industry with the nation’s top multicultural college students. Since then, almost 1000 students from 220 colleges and universities have participated in this premier event, with many of the students attributing the success in obtaining a job after graduation to the distinction that comes from participating in Most Promising. Most importantly, the program provides inductees with access and engagement to high-level industry leaders. Each year, the selected Most Promising inductees have an opportunity to meet with professionals from top agencies, brands, media, and tech companies during the exclusive Most Promising Recruiters Expo. Held in conjunction with the Expo, is the Building Bridges for Our Future Awards Ceremony and Industry Immersion program provide invaluable networking, professional development, and learning experiences. The Industry Immersion component of the program allows students to experience the excitement of a career in advertising firsthand by visiting major advertisers, ad agencies and media and tech companies and attending workshops led by industry leaders. The AAF’s Most Promising program has changed lives and impacted careers for the past 20 years. Have your organization support a program that ensures the future of our industry is inclusive of all. If your organization would like to participate in the Recruiter’s Expo, contact Melony Hughes (mhughes@aaf.org) or Ayanna Jackson (ajackson@aaf.org). https://www.aaf.org/AAFMemberR/Awards_and_Events/Awards/Most_Promising_Multicultural_Students/Partnership.aspx
