AMA Chicago Presents: Creating an Award-winning Inclusivity Campaign


Creating an Award-winning Inclusivity Campaign

Thursday 09 December 20218:45 am - 10:30 am

In their award-winning campaign “The Fight for Fair” National Association of REALTORS® and Havas showcased a commitment to inclusivity through their messaging ad buys and strategies. Realtors were positioned and empowered to be part of the solution to removing institutional racism in the home selling process. The campaign connected well with the people most affected by current inequities and it effectively created a sense of unity and togetherness.

Through this Signature Speaker Series event REALTORS® and Havas will present a case study of this stunning campaign which won two 2021 BrandSmart Awards: the Cause Marketing Award and the Grand Champion Award. They’ll highlight the must-haves for today and tomorrow’s campaigns to authentically embrace and message around diversity equity and inclusion.

This event will be live at Havas and simulcast via Zoom. In-person capacity will be capped at 30 registrants to allow for social distancing. Food and drinks are not allowed in the venue.

We’re back to live events!

The health safety and comfort of our members presenters and guests is our primary concern. To that end beginning November 10 2021 and until further notice:

  • All AMA Chicago in-person meetings require all attendees to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination on-site before entering the meeting venue. Unvaccinated attendees will not be admitted. There are no exceptions to this rule.
  • Per CDC and City of Chicago guidelines face coverings are required for all attendees over the age of 2 in our indoor venues.
  • We will continue to provide virtual attendance for some events and/or recordings of events whenever possible.

If our venue partners change their requirements for gatherings we will edit the in-person requirement here and email all registered attendees.

We reserve the right to change this event format to be virtual (via Zoom) given City of Chicago mandates for indoor gatherings. If the event format changes we will email all registrants.
