Oftentimes, women and minorities don’t always receive the same opportunities to reach success as others.
Our Agency Director, Ashley Northington, knows firsthand what that feels like, as she is an African-American woman who works in the public relations and communications industry and who also happens to be an entrepreneur. Her successes encompasses many hurdles and experiences that she’s had to overcome. Those hurdles have also allowed her to be a light for many young women of color who are interested in pursuing careers in the advertising, public relations, and marketing realm.
That’s why she spoke at the Ad Women For All Women Conference on Tuesday to share her experiences in the communications industry. Ad Women For All Women aims to introduce young women in high school and college to the opportunities available in advertising, to ignite their passion for the business we know and love, and to support them as they endeavor to become a part of it.

We hope to see these girls dominating the industry very soon.
