The Impact Track at #AWNewYork


Our world is an increasingly volatile place. From global warming to over-population, all manner of concern about the well-being of humankind and the planet are making headlines on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis. It’s been widely accepted that we can reverse the course, but only if there are those among us with the courage to lead the way.

Enter the Impact Track at Advertising Week New York, presented by D&AD Impact.

The Impact Track shines the spotlight on the best in our industry and their pursuit of social good and global responsibility. Each panelist in the Impact Track has committed to accepting the challenge of making our world a better place, and each would like nothing more than to explain to you how they intend to do so.

On Tuesday, September 26, join Venture Capitalist Bill Tai and Mekanism CEO Jason Harris for the Impact Promise Pitch, and see D&AD Impact finalists pitch their projects to a jurt of VC’s, brands, and agency leaders.

Join J. Walter Thompson’s Tamara Ingram as she unveils new data and leads an exciting panel of brand leaders as they discuss how to challenge bias in advertising and raise awareness of its ripple effects.

Is good business good business? Find out in an honest discussion between Spotify CMO Seth Farbman and Ben Goldhirsh of GOOD Worldwide. Learn how brands succeed, fail and learn by integrating intention and impact into their business.

Finally, the highlight of your Tuesday afternoon at #AWNewYork will undoubtedly be the wisdom of Richard Edelman, President and CEO of Edelman, as he discusses social good and responsibility with Alexandra Bruell of the Wall Street Journal.
