10:40 - 11:10 AM – LESS TALK. MORE ACTION.

Today's jobs are looking drastically different than they did in the past. They demand creativity, problem solving and critical thinking now more than ever. However, access to these skills isn’t equal geographically or across ethnic and socio-economic groups. When access to skills isn’t equal, access to the future isn’t equal. Which is why 72andSunny is on a radical mission to expand and diversify the talent in creative careers. 
Chief Executive Officer/Partner, Matt Jarvis and Chief Operating Officer/Partner, Evin Shutt will continue their conversation about 72andSunny’s brand citizenship initiative along with sharing actionable ways we can all help create an industry that is as diverse as the world we live in.
