The Face of Talent was established by the 4A’s in 2011 as a catalyst for agency leaders, and their clients, to demonstrate their commitment to two of the most important issues facing our industry—Talent & Diversity. 2018 marks the first Face of Talent unifying event, which brings together all of the 4A’s various diversity and inclusion initiatives under 4A’s Foundation, and underscores the ongoing dedication to connecting the industry to talent for today and tomorrow. 



Purpose & Reach

The Face of Talent is the community-building platform to inspire and connect with MAIP alumni, the current MAIP class and scholars who continue to advocate and champion diversity in advertising, media and PR. 


The multi-day symposium, including the Diversity Leadership Luncheon, attracts over 750 advertising and marketing executives. This series of events is designed to celebrate and showcase over 200 talented diverse college seniors and graduates that comprise the 4A’s Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP) and scholars. 




The Diversity Leadership Luncheon hosts over 400 MAIP fellows, alumni, and industry executives who gather to welcome, acknowledge, award and engage the new face of talent into our industry. It provides an optimal platform to recognize those individuals and agencies committed to diversity, as well as honor rising stars from #MAIP2018
