Who Works Hard for the Money? She does.

On Wednesday, July 22 at Arnold Worldwide in NYC, female MAIP fellows and alumni will come together for an open conversation about managing their money like a boss, salary negotiations, investing in their 401K, and much more.  

 

Created and launched by Neisha Tweed, #MAIPalum and Creative Strategist at Facebook, the platform has empowered the future female leaders of the advertising & media industry.  Below is just some feedback from last year's attendees:

"It was the most candid seminar ever. It was great to hear from the people who were once in the same situation as me and other MAIPers. I could learn the hardships that I need to go through as a woman in color in the advertising industry as well as the advices to go through them as wise as possible. I could never hear things like this anywhere than this seminar."

"The speakers were amazing. They weren't just insightful with their experiences, but they were also very entertaining and interesting."

This year's panel features:

  • Piper Hickman: Creative Director, Freelance
  • Christena Pyle: Director at the ADCOLOR Awards & Industry Conference; Diversity & Inclusion Supervisor at Omnicom Group; and MAIP Alumni Association Executive Council Member (c/o 2007).
  • Genevieve Robles: HR + Talent Associate at The Barbarian Group
  • Khara Wagner: Group Account Director at TBWA/Chiat Day

Google collaborates with MAIP and creates ADBYTE

Collaboration is essential to developing innovative business solutions led by talented professionals. Fueling an appetite to learn how to utilize relevant tech tools applicable to the advertising industry, Google, the 4A's, and MAIP have joined together to create a one-day immersion program, AdByte. 

The program will offer motivated MAIP alumni with one to four years of industry experience the opportunity to gain insight into Google's technology and best practices to leverage these tools within their advertising positions.

Consisting of a product-based curriculum focused on Google’s advertising operations, AdByte will include an overview of Search, Display & Video products (including AdWords, DoubleClick and YouTube). The essence of the AdByte program is for participants to compete in a real case scenario, where MAIP Alumni will develop a 4A’s member advertising agency’s pro-bono client digital campaign, with the goal to execute the campaign in the future.

The pilot program is October, 28th 2013 at the Google Headquaters
