Since 2016, AFC has been committed to diversifying the agency community in Atlanta. We know that lasting change will only come from doing the work. This year, we are the presenting sponsor of the Mosaic Award, an award recognizes organizations and individuals making a lasting and tangible impact to diversity and inclusion in our industry. Join us in congratulating this year’s winner, Chemistry. Their dedication to making advertising more inclusive is evident through their work and organization-wide initiatives. Congratulations Chemistry! For more information on the Mosaic Awards, visit https://aaf.org/mosaicawards.
We’re proud to announce our first award recipient, Lisa Marie Rainford. The 2017 University of Georgia graduate constantly impressed with her work, and it ultimately led AFC’s decision to choose her as MVP. Each of our four founding agencies then extended an identical job offer to Lisa, and when she took the stage and chose Fitzgerald & Co.’s offer as junior strategist, the room roared with pride and support.
On August 10, 2017, AFC received the MAIP Agency of the Year Award—a standout recognition for our organization. It’s been a more successful first year than we could ever have imagined, and our journey to grow multicultural talent in the Atlanta advertising industry has only just begun. We’re excited to see where AFC will go in the coming years.
