ADCOLOR Celebrates Best & Brightest in Diversity
Diversity matters. It particularly matters in the programs we watch and their accompanying ads. When marketers make an effort to create ads that reflect the realistic demographic of our country–everyone benefits. Some see themselves represented in commercials even if they might not see themselves in their local towns. Others might see people who faces or lifestyle is different than their own but equally as normal. The importance of inclusive marketing is why innitivites that laud companies doing an excellent job at making everyone feel like they matter are so important. One such program, ADCOLOR, which not only supports said programs it also selects Award nominees and honorees who not only to go above and beyond in their own careers, but also go out of their way to help others and make an impact on their peers.
