Diversity Conference Series Travels to Boston
Continuing our support of the diversity in advertising cause, on May 16th, Business Development Institute in partnership with Boston University, The Ad Club, and Adrants will host the first annual Boston Advertising, Marketing and PR Industry Diversity Job Fair and Leadership Conference. The two-day event will be hosted by Boston University on May 15th and May 16th and will provide advertising, marketing and PR companies an opportunity to connect with today's up and coming minority job candidates in New England. A Networking Reception will take place the evening of May 15th and the morning of May 16th will consist of a Leadership Conference followed by the Job Fair.
Within the past year, Business Development Institute and Adrants have partnered with New York University, Academy of Art Institute, and Bay Area Interactive Group (BIG) to produce Diversity Job Fair and Leadership Conference programs in both New York City and San Francisco. Over 750 job candidates from minority backgrounds have connected with more than 50 leading agencies and corporate marketers that have exhibited and recruited at the events. Feedback from job candidates and recruiters has been extremely positive.
