Don't miss the Ad Age Leading Women Conference & Awards on Monday, Sept. 13, a virtual conference examining how brands, companies and people in the advertising, marketing, media and tech can do more to empower female talent in the industry.
In addition to honoring this year's class of women in the U.S. and Europe who are sparking innovation in all areas of business, the event brings together those that creating the change they want to see—and inspiring others to do the same.
This year's Leading Women Vanguard Award recipient is Jerri DeVard, a veteran marketer who established the Black Executive CMO Alliance to champion equitable opportunities for all Black marketing executives in the industry today. In DeVard's words, “Anyone who says they haven’t made mistakes or hasn’t had any roadblocks isn’t telling you the truth. It’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do about it.”
