Mosaic Next Generation Leadership Council

To position the Mosaic Council for continued success, the AAF formed the Mosaic Next Generation Leadership Council as a way to mentor aspiring young talent to become future leaders of the Council and advertising industry. The Mosaic Next Generation Leadership Council, composed of seven individuals with three to six years of professional experience, will be tasked with making various updates and improvements to the Mosaic Center for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Advertising's programming and networks. Responsibilities include developing new and relevant content for the Most Promising Multicultural Students program, leading social media promotion and coverage for all Mosaic Center events, and selecting recipients for student-related Mosaic Awards categories, among other tasks.


To create a foundation for the Mosaic Council’s work, the members have created the AAF’s Mosaic Principles. These Principles offer agencies and companies at-large the recommendations needed to institute common diversity practices that are essential to addressing the demands of our consumers.
