Life at the Ad Council

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.
Who We Are & What We Stand For
Our values made us pioneers for social good, and they continue to guide us as we seek new ways to create lasting social change. We always stand up for what we know to be important and we’ll continue to do it together.

The Best Team

We are lucky to have a bold, compassionate, and inclusive team that lives our values every day. Everyone at the Ad Council wakes up excited to come to work, because each day we get to empower young girls to pursue careers in STEM, or highlight the importance of saving for retirement, or advocate for bullying prevention. Together we help millions of people live safer, healthier, and happier lives.
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.

One initiative from the council includes our employee resource groups. Focusing on mental and physical health, people of color, LGBTQ+ and working parents, these groups help us value, celebrate, and support the unique characteristics that make each person at the Ad Council who they are. These groups include:

Innovation at the Ad Council

We believe a culture of innovation is necessary for creating deeply impactful work. In lockstep with this belief, we’ve trained the majority of our staff, including our Senior Leadership team, to think differently, work collaboratively, and take an iterative approach to developing solutions rooted in driving social impact.


Do you want to be part of the team? We need your creativity, your talent, your smarts, and, most of all, your passion for social change.
