Diversity of thought, experience, and cultural perspective
space150 launched our Diversity and Inclusion Initiative in 2016, to address issues of disparity being seen and felt in both our agency and in the advertising community at large.
This diverse volunteer-based group of 20+ space150 team members (from C-level leadership down to Associate level employees) across all three offices and all disciplines is impassioned to produce inclusive and authentic work for our clients, utilizing a workforce that reflects the world around us, and build a collaborative and safe workspace for that work to come to life.
While we know that there’s much work to be done towards building a more inclusive and diverse culture, we’re proud of the advancements that we’ve made internally to make space150 more inclusive for nearly every team member, regardless of tenure, title, age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or any other factor. space150 is a place where anyone can openly be themselves and feel supported and celebrated in doing so.
We are 100% committed to making sure space150 is always a safe space that is collaborative and inclusive.
The space150 D&I committee
is currently focused on several broad goals designed to improve workforce diversity, increase retention, and educate our employees on issues of race, class, etc. These goals are spearheaded by our four subcommittees:
