SPARKED Connections Panel Hosted at MPC NY Addresses Diversity and Inclusion

“If you have to count the number of black faces in your office, then you’ve got a problem because no one’s counting the white people.” So said Wunderman Thompson’s Keni Thacker at a SPARKED Connections panel discussion on boosting diversity and inclusion in the creative industries, which took place on Oct. 3 at Moving Picture Company’s New York studio.

SPARKED is an inclusive networking organization created by Isabelle du Plessis, Head of Marketing at The Mill in New York, and Jenny Natelson, a Production Manager at Grey. It was designed to help diversify the industry through a democratized approach to networking. Through free New York events, the organization hopes to create conversation and action around diversity and inclusion in ways that can effect positive change.
