Not just another multicultural marketing conference, Campaign I&C brings together the most influential leaders in marketing, advertising, and creative committed to shaking up the industry and changing the status quo. The agenda is crafted to take the conversation from multicultural to mainstream, and most important, your bottom-line. Each session explores the challenges and successes of brands and agencies, as the industry attempts to move forward with more inclusive campaigns that transcend stereotypes and create meaningful connections with consumers. I&C challenges you to think unconventionally and strategically about the industry's shortcomings, and drive discussion that will produce solutions.

Let it Burn: A Candid Discussion on the Past, Present and Future of Ad Culture

  • Chairman's Note

Madison Avenue’s culture is rooted in exclusivity, and the legacy of that tradition continues to haunt us. Even as America becomes increasingly multiethnic, the ad industry remains overwhelmingly male and white: Less than 7% of industry staff are African American, less than 6% are Asian American and only about 11% are Hispanic. And while women make up a far larger portion of the industry than they once did, they still struggle to grab the top jobs; only 11% of creative directors are female. But awareness of adland’s disparities is at an all-time high (thanks in part to certain ill-behaved male ex-CEOs), creating an opportunity for our industry to fully—and frankly—address the scourge. Do we attempt to salvage an ad culture rooted in inequality, or burn it to the ground and start anew? In this session, we talk about the concept of “burning it down.”

Driving the Discussion on Total Market

  • Panel Discussion

As the constructs of multiculturalism expands to be inclusive of more demographics, marketers and advertisers need to assess their approach to reaching a more culturally diverse consumer base. With the Hispanic population on track to become a consumer majority, when is it time to take the discussion from “niche” and “multicultural” and make it a “mainstream discussion” that is truly about the TOTAL market? In this session we explore multicultural and total market approaches, and drill down on the total market concept while we attempt to create a unified definition of total market for the industry.

Are Quotas the Way Forward?

  • Panel Discussion

General Mills, HP and Verizon won nearly universal praise across the industry in 2016 by insisting their agency partners start meeting strict diversity requirements. But can quotas and financial incentives really bring about the sort of evolution in creative the industry requires? Will these mandates simply lead to tokenism and “show” hires? This discussion takes a look at the effectiveness of diversity mandates in advertising, as well as some of the tactics employed by our peers striving to reshape the industry so that inclusion is evident in the creative. Join us for a discussion that ventures beyond quotas and explores a comprehensive approach to inclusion that calls out the importance of workforce cultural and the metrics that support heightened performance and productivity.

Creative Under the (Diverse) Looking Glass

  • Panel Discussion

As the industry moves toward the total market approach, more brands are starting to question the need for multicultural agencies if the ultimate goal is to be more inclusive. In an attempt to be more inclusive in their messaging, have brands done the right thing by moving away from agencies with dedicated multicultural services or is the full-service agency model the way to go? Furthermore, we dive into a discussion on the value and resources allocated for multicultural ad campaigns. Regardless of who the work is targeting, the cost of production remains the same, so why should the budgets differ? Join us for a lively debate featuring a panel of brand experts discussing the various avenues for success, and the resources needed to get you there!

Withstanding the Backlash: How to Stay Brave in the Face of Intolerance

  • Panel Discussion

For brands that choose to challenge stereotypes in their advertising, or back a particular social agenda, there is always the risk of inciting a sizeable and angry backlash—sometimes from the very communities they were looking to empower. Together we will discuss how brands and agencies handle the aftermath of creative work that generates provocative dialogue, stirs public opinion, and gives the twitterverse lots to tweet about.
