The #SeeHer movement is spearheaded by the ANA, the largest marketing and advertising association in the United States.
The CW Network’s new initiative, #CWOpenToAll, is an on-air, digital, social and print campaign reinforcing the network’s commitment to inclusion and representation.
The Ad Council, R/GA, and an unprecedented group of brand partners present Rising, a short film that is a powerful extension of the iconic Love Has No Labels campaign. The film was directed by Game of Thrones’ David Nutter with screenplay by Lena Waithe creator of Showtime’s The Chi and Emmy winning writer for Master of None. It features the immediate aftermath of a massive storm and challenges viewers to consider why it takes a disaster to bring us together. The film pays tribute to real moments when people from different backgrounds have come together following natural disasters. Rising hopes to encourage all Americans to come together and ultimately inspire people to act inclusively every day. Come Together at lovehasnolabels.com.
