Portfolio Review with Advertising Agencies–Free Registration

Looking to get hired? Looking to network? 30 companies are hoping to meet with you!

Where Are All The Black People? — The One Club for Creativity‘s annual diversity conference and career fair — is exactly five weeks away, and we couldn’t be more excited! And if you’ve been thinking about making new industry connections in this ever-evolving world of advertising, we definitely want you sharing in on that excitement!

This past year has seen a lot of industry changes — think about how many agencies let people work from home before COVID? The uncertainty of 2020 has made way for the opportunities of 2021, especially for people of color and their allies, and so many companies are making room for those opportunities.

“‘All of the agencies at WAATBP are there to find new, diverse voices for our industry — take them up on it.”
— Noel Cottrell, CCO, VMLY&R, Kansas City

See all of those logos at the bottom of this email? These represent the many companies that will be sitting down with you to discuss your work during our Portfolio Reviews, as well as hosting virtual Recruiting Booths that will allow you to network with their team and learn what they’re all about.

Add these to a series of amazing workshops, panel discussions, and keynotes — all of it virtual so you can participate from anywhere in the world — and you’ll know why WAATBP is not to be missed! Register for free today and see you September 29 and 30!




Human Rights Education and Arts Paid Internship Program

ARTE is currently seeking a group of committed and passionate interns for the upcoming semester, September 8, 2021 through December 17, 2021 (14 weeks).

Application deadline: Sunday, August 15, 2021 at 11:59 pm ET

ARTE is a grassroots, NYC-based non-profit organization dedicated to amplifying youth voices for human rights change using the visual arts, and I am reaching out regarding ARTE’S fall 2021 internship opportunity.

Recognizing that unpaid internships perpetuate oppression, particularly classism, and that not all people can afford to work for free, we are hosting a paid, fall internship program. Through this program, interns will help support the organizing efforts of young activists in the fight for equity and justice.

We are looking for folks interested in working at the intersection of human rights, the visual arts, and youth development, and we encourage young people of color (18-25) to apply. The program application deadline is Sunday, August 15 at 11:59 pm ET.

Please contact with any questions or concerns.

New Prefix for Design Courses!

Design courses now have their own prefix! Design courses previously listed as ARTS are now listed as DESN,

This change has caused some issues with Degreeworks for students pursuing a Design major. We are working with the Registrar to resolve this issue. Please be patient, and rest assured that this issue will not interfere with your ability to graduate. Degreeworks is a tool for students, and sadly often confusing. Your entire transcript is reviewed when petitioning for graduation.
