The AD Club of NY Rings the NASDAQ Opening Bell for Diversity


Yesterday, The ADVERTISING Club of New York took part in an iconic New York moment – ringing the NASDAQ Opening Bell in honor of diversity. What a way to start the new year!

It was a remarkable sign of what we can accomplish when we stand together. To date, we’ve raised over $2 million in funds to support the programs that are creating a more diverse advertising industry – and we aren’t stopping there. We have big plans…more to come!

A big thank you to our esteemed partners, Board of Directors, and Chair of the Board, Laurel Rossi, for being there. To be joined by these diversity champions made the moment that much more powerful. Shout-out to our Board and members who continue to support I’mPART and make diversity a priority.

Thanks to all who came out to support us and be part of the experience!
