About the Program
Inviting Everyone to the Table
Join AMAKC as we engage with POAC Succeed and learn how to encourage open dialogue and accelerate diversity and inclusion efforts.
POAC Succeed believes diversity is something to be celebrated, especially in business. It’s no secret that business booms when your environment is inclusive and accepting. Their corporate program is a great way to start courageous conversations around the office and develop your company’s culture.
POAC Succeed Executive Director and Founder, Jamie Grayson, will bring his expertise in closing the gap between social injustices and equality, guiding attendees in a collaborative discussion on how to bring about change in their environments and why it matters in a marketing world.
