As we kick off Black History Month 2023, top agencies share how they’re celebrating Black culture and art, championing Black talent and investing in Black creatives this month and all year long.

UM Worldwide
To celebrate Black History Month, UM will be hosting ‘Ginger & Soul’ as part of our ‘Real Talk’ panel series that delves into the hard truths about race and culture in America. This month’s discussion will highlight the intersection of R&B and Afrobeats – specifically the influence of Afrobeats, a community that has largely been overlooked for its contributions to music and culture.

This year’s Black History Month is also the first time UM is rolling out its latest diversity, equity and belonging initiative, ‘Together at the table’, a roundtable discussion and safe space for UMers to peel back layers on topics that go beyond the workplace – like family, finance and mental health – that impact not only how they show up professionally, but also in their communities.
