Whether you’re recruiting more diverse talent to your company or looking to make your next career move, Advancing Diversity Week: Black Talent Outreach is where you should start. With a focus on Black talent outreach for its second annual Advancing Diversity Week, MediaVillage is connecting eager, qualified candidates to human resources, journalism, advertising, and other professionals in the industry.
From October 17-20, Advancing Diversity Week’s main objective is to collect 2,500 resumes from Black talent to add more valuable Black perspectives to the media, marketing, entertainment, and advertising professions. Right now, Black people make up less than 5% of the professionals in the advertising industry.
The media and advertising community has established a free Resume Submission Portal. Candidates can share interests and submit resumes to a host of companies at week.advancingdiversity.org/registration or the MediaVillage.com and AdvancingDiversity.org websites.
The 2022 Advancing Diversity Week: Black Talent Outreach boasts a four-day virtual program featuring storytelling, interviews, and panels with decision-makers at local, national, and global companies and nonprofits. Those interested in attending the virtual program can register at MediaVillage.com. There is also an exclusive, in-person cocktail reception recognizing the 2022 Advancing Diversity Hall of Honors inductees on the evening of October 19.
