For the safety of all participants during the COVID-19 pandemic, WAATBP 2020 will be 100% online. By moving to a virtual conference, we will be able to include attendees from all over the country, and world, like never before.
WAATBP is more than a job fair; it's a forum for the creative industry to have transparent discussions on racial inequity and professional development. In today’s social and political climate, it’s vital that everyone take part in these conversations, from entry-level to C-suite.
Lastly, WAATBP will be 100% free for all ticket holders. We want to ensure that there’s no financial barrier to attend the panels, portfolio reviews, or career fair. Let’s be more progressive, inclusive, and bolder than ever.
CEO of REFORM Alliance, CNN host and political commentator, and an Emmy-nominated producer
Jones has been a leader in the fight for criminal justice reform for more than 25 years. He has founded and led many thriving social enterprises, including the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Color of Change, and the Dream Corps – a social justice accelerator that houses Dream Corps TECH, Green For All and #cut50, which led the charge to pass the FIRST STEP Act (a bipartisan Federal bill that the New York Times calls the most substantial breakthrough in criminal justice in a generation).
WAATBP would not be possible without the support and resources of an incredible group of partners from across the advertising industry and beyond. These partners believe in our commitment to a more inclusive and diverse creative industry.
