2022 PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD DINNER
This inspiring night took place at the Glasshouse in New York City on December 1, 2022.
As a certified LinkedIn influencer with over 34,000 industry-leading followers, Ad Council President and CEO Lisa Sherman is committed to using her platform to elevate Black women and BIPOC individuals whose careers, achievements and causes might benefit from the exposure. At a time when in-person industry mixers aren’t happening as they normally would, and with the acknowledgment that not everyone has equal access to those spaces, #HaveYouMet is the virtual equivalent of that moment when two people are talking and a third approaches: “Have you met?”
The Ad Council is partnering with NowThis to co-host weekly livestream events on Facebook to inspire and empower audiences to get involved in the most important social issues of today. Guests featured include experts, talent and personal stories of impact. We’ll continue to use our platforms to highlight these critical conversations.
