The 3% MiniCon DC, June 6, Washington, DC 
The 3% Movement, the advertising industry’s leading voice for gender equality and diversity overall, comes to our nation’s capital to focus on how brands are aligning with causes, leading with purpose, and answering to consumers during an unprecedented time of activism in the U.S. Remember when advertising just sold stuff? Stuck to features and benefits? Never got political? Those days are over. Today, consumers want to know who they’re buying from, not just what they’re buying. They care what causes brands support, how they pay their people, who’s on their board and in their supply chain, and how big their carbon footprint is. We’ll be discussing brand purpose and agency partnerships in making change. Featured speakers include: Lisa Ross, President of Edelman DC; Chris Edwards, Freelance Creative Director/Author; Amanda Enayati, Author/Head of Culture Innovation at The 3% Movement; Tim Allen, Director of Design at Microsoft Design; and more! Join us in DC on June 6, 2019 for a mixture of main stage keynotes and panel discussions, plus afternoon breakout sessions. Use code: 3PDCMulticultural for a 15% off discount (valid until May 17). 
The AAF’s 2019 Mosaic Awards, June 6, Hollywood, FL 
Join the American Advertising Foundation (AAF) in recognizing and celebrating inclusive and innovative marketing campaigns, media content, company initiatives and champions of diversity.  
Your participation will assist in honoring those change agents who create content and work environments that better reflect today’s multicultural landscape. To learn more about making a meaningful impact in supporting the 2019 Mosaic Awards, please visit
