We're thrilled for our Learning & Development team which is up for two big awards in the learning space.
We are finalist for a Brandon Hall Award for our Media Foundations Program AND Corporate University of the Year by CUBIC!
This summer, we partnered with Futures and Options to welcome our inaugural class of the "Future Academy," consisting of 21 NYC students in the 11th and 12th grade and recent graduates.
Simon Fenwick, EVP, Global Talent & Inclusion, in a "HS Visionaries" panel during the 2017 Youth Career Development Summit explained the impetus for this program: "It's important for us to realize there is so much great talent out there that may never have the chance for a college degree."
Work Design Magazine talked with Ted Moudis Associates about our Global HQ work space. Check it out here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ09L
We are thrilled to introduce our global, talent content series -- Talent Talk. We look forward to introducing you to the diversity across our network through discussions with engaging talent. We will explore topics that we hope are of interest to you.
While Cannes has come and gone, we want to launch the first Talent Talk with a sit down with some of our youngest and best talent at Cannes Lions 2017.
As we continue this week saying good-bye to our NYC Residents, Andrew McClelland, a Cadreon Programmatic Media Resident, shares his thoughts on #IPGMBResidency17:
"I didn’t know anything about programmatic when I first started. I learned a great deal through this experience, such as the importance of pulling insights from data. I learned how to consolidate over 100,000 slides and filter it to 10 rows and actually pull important data from that to present a chart to clients in a way they will understand. I’m now in a position where I can explain the value of Cadreon and programmatic to someone who was like me 10 weeks ago, knowing little to nothing. I appreciate all the knowledge I gained being here.”
Orion Resident, Digital Media Activation, Marissa McCann shares her thoughts on #IPGMBResidency17
“It was a really great experience because of all the amazing people I got to meet and all the things I was able to learn. Although we are interns, we receive the same respect and the same transparency as everyone else around us. We are treated with importance and they truly want us to succeed. This program exceeded all of my expectations.”
Our IPG Mediabrands Diversity & Inclusion team in NYC has partnered with Futures and Options to deliver an industry first: The “Future Academy” powered by IPG Mediabrands.
The Future Academy will be an immersive experience for 20 high school students in the metropolitan New York area to learn about our industry.
Here's to the future and our Futurists!

Our NYC-based Residents are working on a program first – a Resident-run charitable drive to give back to our local communities, which they're calling "Sam's Suitcase."
All brands from across our network are participating and folks in NYC have through this Monday to donate.
Jordan Friedman, a UM Worldwide Resident and point person on the project, explains:
“I think it’s important for companies to take the time to give back. It was incredible participating in UM’s Impact Day (#UMIMPACTYDAY) and this is an extension of that good-will being spread throughout the local community. These toiletries will go a long way for those at Project Renewal and Lenox Hill.
Lenox Hill will use these toiletries at their Women's Mental Health Shelter where they house about 80 women experiencing mental health issues. Project Renewal will use the toiletries for their renewal kits which are given to low income and homeless men and women who visit their medical van for primary care."
Our Residents met with senior leaders from throughout the network for some speed mentoring sessions. #IPGMBResidency17
Cadreon's Monica Chen shares what she is most anticipating about the ColorComm Conference: "I am looking forward to meeting other women of color in ad tech as there are very few women in ad tech."
