The Mosaic Council

The AAF's Mosaic Council is an established infrastructure of national advertisers, general market and minority advertising agencies, media organizations and suppliers. As the advertising industry's premier “think tank” on diversity and multiculturalism, the council identifies best practices for achieving greater industry diversity and multiculturalism while advancing the common interest of all industry segments.

The council's goals are threefold. First, achieve greater workplace diversity within the advertising industry. Second, create opportunities for minority suppliers and general market corporations to work together to create effective advertising campaigns and programs targeted towards multicultural markets. Third, to prepare the industry's future leaders so they recognize the importance of a diversified workforce and multicultural marketing's impact on a company's bottom line.

The council serves as the advisory board to the Mosaic Center, which develops and implements AAF's programs and policies to address the ad industry's diversity initiatives.
