The Marcus Graham Project Honors JWT with the Change Agency Award
The Marcus Graham Project has honored our network with the organization's fourth annual Change Agency Award.
This award is designed to recognize a corporation that has contributed significant time, talent and resources in helping the next generation of diverse talent in the fields of advertising, media and marketing.
On June 30th, the award was presented at the Marcus Graham Project's sixth annual Lavender Hill Gala at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Much of our success can be directly attributed to the support that JWT Atlanta and JWT New York has given to us year over year”
Co-CEO/Founder of the Marcus Graham Project, Lincoln Stephens, wrote, "Much of our success can be directly attributed to the support that JWT Atlanta and JWT New York has given to us year over year, not only in providing scholarship support since 2010 for the Bill Sharp Award, but also in providing access to JWT talent to serve as speakers and mentors (Keni Thacker, Perry Fair, George Medland – who for over 15 years ran print production in Atlanta --and Glenn Callwood especially). As we have continued to look at our growth and have made earnest strides in growing the impact that we can make, JWT has been a consistent partner towards our efforts.”
JWTers who attended the event to accept our award included Eric Alexander Franklin, Senior Art Director at JWT New York; Camille Kelley, HR Coordinator at JWT New York; Charae Warner, HR Director at JWT Atlanta.
