Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diverse perspectives are at the core of everything we do—only together can we find new ways to reach our audiences across the country. That’s why we’re proud to support industry efforts like SeeHer, #SeeAll and Free the Work.

It is also not simply our belief, but our duty, to recruit and support a diverse team that is representative of the American people. Our goal is to cultivate a sense of belonging for all who enter the Ad Council doors. It’s why we have a Diversity Equity and Inclusion Council made up of volunteers from across our organization and across all levels.

We come from varied backgrounds and perspectives, but all AC-ers have one thing in common: a passion for social change. Our work brings clarity and questions, inspires us to learn from those we’re trying to reach, and helps us really listen to each other.

We cherish our differences and our common purpose.

The Next Generation of DEI Culture
At SXSW 2022, Ad Council's Jazmine Brown joined a panel of DEI practitioners to discuss the evolution of creativity, the intersection of representation and storytelling, and the new non-negotiables around DEI.
