Events Calendar

Agency people may be a lot of fun but they're also professional. So are our regular events, ranging from panels of our industry’s best discussing hot topics to casual after-hours mixers where we basically goof off while we network.

Shift Forward: Driving Equity in Creative Organizations

  • CDK Digital 605 5th Ave S #800 Seattle, WA 98104 (map)

#MeToo. #TimesUpAdvertising. Diet Madison Avenue.

Unfamiliar? So are most people. We’ll get you caught up.

Already on board? Right on. Bring someone who isn’t yet.

This panel event is for everyone.

We’ll get you up to speed on what’s suddenly become an all-new landscape in our industry around making things better for everyone in a creative workplace.

Men, we need you involved. Your understanding and action can create tremendous impact. We’re here to support you.

Women, you’ve been central to the movement to improve in so many ways. Your voices enlighten the path. We’re here to support you.

And yes, to the many people who identify with gender in non-traditional ways, you belong as well. You show us amazing ways to appreciate humanity. We’re here to support you.

This event seeks to provide education, empathy, and ideas for change in creative organizations. Through shifting our understanding of where we are, how HR relates to its workforce, how people see each other, and even the language we use, we hope to inspire creative men and women to design—and demand—a more inclusive workplace.

Beer, wine, and light eats included!

Specialty cocktail provided by Hand Crank Films
