AAF Speaker Series: Kurt Thigpen

Free – $40.00
Kurt Thigpen

Beyond Pride Month, LGBTQ+ representation in advertising is minimal, despite them being the most diverse group of people on the planet.

LGBTQ+ individuals span every demographic measured and carry major spending power, and yet that are among the least represented in advertisements and media. People crave human connection and authenticity—advertising that represents them and validates their identity as human beings.

We can do better at creating more inclusive representations in our work—and in ways that show companies care about diversity and not just the bottom line. In this presentation, Kurt Thigpen is “outing” the advertising industry’s standards and points out ways we can improve, as well as some displaying examples of advertisements and companies that are doing it right. He’ll deliver key takeaways on how you can create inclusive, diverse, and respectful advertising campaigns.
