"We are recognizing trailblazers in media and marketing who are boldly evoking change and creating a more welcoming environment for future leaders by championing diversity and inclusion in their own organizations, in the media business and society," said Jack Myers, Founder of MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org. "I'm proud to have the opportunity to showcase their successes in this breakthrough collaboration with Sundance Institute: an immersive Creative Tensions experience created by Sundance Institute + IDEO, and offer a roadmap for companies to advance their own diversity efforts."
  
The eight Advancing Diversity Hall of Honors inductees and initiatives are: 
  • Kat Gordon, Founder + CEO, The 3% Movement 
  • Marc Pritchard, Chief Brand Officer, P&G, Diversity Leadership  
  • Ricardo Marques, VP Marketing, Budweiser's Diversity & Inclusion Campaigns

  • Bob Liodice, CEO, ANA's Alliance for Inclusive and Multicultural Marketing
