Ogilvy Expands DE&I Content Offering Thought Partnership With 2045 Studio
NEW YORK — Nov 22, 2022 — Ogilvy announced today that it has partnered with 2045 Studio, whose mission is to humanize diversity. 2045 Studio builds and operates entities that are all tasked with humanizing diversity. Its media and content business, Diversity Explained, launched in Spring 2022 to make diversity-related topics more approachable through weekly editorial, podcasts, and video content. They launched the partnership in conjunction with a video series Defining Diversity featuring Porter Braswell, Founder of 2045 Studio, and Global CEO of Ogilvy, Devika Bulchandani, sharing perspectives on diversity-related topics like “Being the Only, Creating A Diverse Culture, and Diversity Fatigue,”. Through the partnership, Ogilvy will expand its footprint and dedication to helping clients with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) advisory and continue to set the standard for DE&I programming across the advertising industry.
Porter Braswell, Founder of 2045 Studio said: “We are thrilled to partner with a trailblazing organization like Ogilvy. Through its vision, Ogilvy continues to set the mark for what’s relevant in today’s society, and we are excited to have them as 2045 Studio’s first corporate partner of Diversity Explained. It’s our goal at 2045 Studio to elevate people of color in the workforce to feel seen, heard, and valued.
