Planet Joins Independent Agency Group to Launch Blac: Building Leaders and Creators
We’re excited to help launch a new cross-agency internship program aimed at bringing more Black people into advertising.
We’re excited to help launch a new cross-agency internship program, BLAC, aimed at bringing more Black people into advertising, further preparing them to thrive and lead. Applications for Summer 2021 are due by March 5.
BLAC is an eight-week, paid, remote internship for creative thinkers that takes place at independent ad agencies across the country, including Planet. The first week is an immersion into agency life—a time for interns to learn more about the industry, get inspired by creative thinkers from a variety of places, and connect with fellow interns from across the collective. After that, they’ll work within individual agencies to do portfolio-worthy work for real clients.
If you or someone you know is a creative talent who might be interested, there’s more information about the program at blacinternship.com. We know talent comes from everywhere, and everyone is welcome to apply, regardless of background or age. Our camp week is designed to help interns get up to speed and ready to jump into the workflow of an agency for the rest of the program.
We thank the other participating agencies, the program facilitators, and program sponsor Proctor & Gamble for providing an opportunity to effect change at our agency and throughout the industry.
