Gandhi wisely said “be the change you want to see in the world.” It’s more than time for us marketers to invest in the future we want to see.
It’s a simple concept, but not easily undertaken. And, while most advertisers want to contribute to real progress, many don’t know how or where to commit. In this Ascendant fireside, we’ll explore how two businesses are changing the industry by putting DE&I at their core.   
Group Black and SHE Media are working together to change the face of media investment and ownership. Their partnership empowers and monetizes 250 premium Black, Women-Owned SHE Media publishers by directly connecting publishers with Group Black's brand and advertising partners. Brands are clamoring to be a part of this movement; Group Black just secured a multi-year 9 figure investment from P&G to spend on digital, linear, OTT, digital audio, and print.
After all, it’s just good business sense. According to Nielsen, Black buying power is projected to reach $1.8 trillion by 2024. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, the reach and influence of black culture goes far beyond the 13% population.
This session is about putting your money where your mouth is – with responsible media investments you can do good while doing good business.
