Twelve years ago, ColorComm started as a luncheon series in Washington, D.C., to connect women of color in the communications, marketing, advertising, media and digital industries. Before diversity, equity and inclusion became a trending topic, we saw the need to provide women of color with the resources and connections needed to excel in an industry that wasn’t always representative.
Our intergenerational network (ages 22-65) offers programming that is reflective of our multicultural community.
Since its founding, ColorComm has become the leading women’s platform addressing diversity and inclusion across the communications industry. Recent attacks against DEI programs have proven that more work needs to be done.
When the governor of Florida threatened to ban the voices of people of color and ban DEI education and programs in the state, ColorComm provided a platform for industry leaders to discuss the impact that racial and social issues has on the communications industry in Florida and across the nation.
