LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ADVDiversity?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ADVDiversitylt;/agt;–Diversity. Kindness. Otherness. Respect. Listen. Advancing
Diversity
. As one entered the AdvancingDiversity.org event at
ARIA in Las Vegas during Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 9th,
those words set the stage and greeted an impressive gathering of present
and future thought leaders from the media, marketing, technology, and
entertainment worlds.


The evening began with eight game-changing executives mingling in a
reception filled with inspirational messaging from the partners who made MediaVillage’s
Advancing
Diversity Hall of Honors
and Inclusive
Talent Job Fair
, possible.

Advancing Diversity Honors partners included Active
International, AMC Networks, Ascential, BSSP, Budweiser, Comcast
FreeWheel, Crown Media Family Networks, Dentsu Aegis Network, Facebook,
Google, Greenspun Media Group, Hulu, Interpublic Group, MediaVillage,
NCC Media, Nielsen, Publicis Media, Sinclair Broadcast Group, SJR,
Sundance Institute, Teads.tv,
Turner, Twitter, Univision, VaynerMedia, Verizon, Viacom, The Walt
Disney Company and Xandr.

The eight Advancing Diversity Honors inductees in attendance were:

  • Kat Gordon, Founder + CEO, The 3% Movement

Nearly 400 influential attendees including surprise guest Katie Couric
honored the recipients in an innovative twist to the traditional awards
show format. The program was a collaboration with Sundance Institute
Theater Program
, which curated Creative
Tensions
, an experiential approach to group dialogue,
where the inductees explored topics important to them through movement
and interaction with the audience.

“When first experiencing Creative Tensions at the Aspen Ideas
Festival, I knew we had to find a way to bring this breakthrough concept
to our community for the Advancing Diversity Hall of Honors,”
said Jack Myers, founder of MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org.
“The energy in the room was magical as we celebrated these trailblazers
in media and marketing in such an innovative and thought-provoking way.”

The immersive experience was integrated with MediaVillage’s Inclusive
Talent Job Fair
, that
offered jobs for those studying or working in the fields of STEM, media,
marketing, advertising, communications, design, journalism, tech and
entertainment. Recruiters from some of the world’s biggest agencies,
tech companies and media brands hired many of the more than 100
applicants on the spot. Interested applicants can still register their
resumes at www.CES19.com.
