Why

NETWORKING

Join a dedicated space for our community to talk about personal + professional biases, and how we can strive to overcome them.

 

The last nine months of 2020 have completely turned our worlds upside down. Between a global pandemic, economic downturn, the fight for social justice, quarantine, record unemployment, and the resulting mental health crisis, it’s more than anyone should have to bear, but it’s been particularly challenging for our BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities.

After hundreds of years of systemic racism, inequity, inequality, and injustice, there’s a huge gap of disparity in the way our BIPOC communities in our country (and in our industry as a whole) are represented and treated.

AMA Triangle believes that marketing is for everyone and we’re doing everything in our power* to be the change we want to see. Our mission this year is to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future, by making sure that AMA Triangle focuses on the person, not just the marketer. This mission is called, “The Whole Marketer Promise”, and part of that promise is the implementation of safe spaces, thoughtful conversation, and dedicated DEI education around the creation of a more inclusive environment within AMA Triangle, our respective communities, and organizations around the world.

In the spirit of growing and learning from one another, AMA Triangle invites you to join “Community Conversations: How To Overcome Our Biases” on January 7th, from 5-6pm EST for a thoughtful discussion.

 

In this session, we’ll be discussing our thoughts around the following Ted Talk:

*AMA Triangle began its DEI journey in March by creating its very first Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) team for the 2020-21 chapter year. It furthered its mission in May by co-founding and authoring a national AMA DEI Chapter Pledge to be adopted by AMA chapters across the nation.
