Simultaneously, the program offers advertising agencies the opportunity to access top student talent and strengthens the 4A’s efforts to enhance the diversity workforce of our industry.

In addition to a full-time paid internship, MAIP fellows participate in a series of agency sponsored professional development workshops and seminars, which provide a deeper dive into the various advertising and media disciplines. The workshops also grant fellows the opportunity to learn more about the host agency’s culture through networking with agency professionals post-workshop and agency tours. MAIP fellows residing in the larger markets will attend these workshops. MAIP fellows residing in smaller markets will have the opportunity to participate in alternative networking events orchestrated by MAIP alumni and agency partners.
All fellows who successfully complete MAIP will attend The Face of Talent at the end of the summer. The week includes an interactive forum for graduating MAIP fellows, a leadership luncheon for advertising professionals invested in MAIP and diversity and inclusion, annual career fair for MAIP fellows and alumni, a congratulatory evening reception, behind the scenes conversations with agency professionals, and much more.
Comprised of over 2,700 alumni, the MAIP Alumni Association was founded by Marc Stephenson Strachan, a 1981 MAIP alumnus, to connect MAIP alumni nationwide dedicated to empowering multicultural advertising professionals with opportunities to achieve success throughout their careers. The MAIP Alumni Association Executive Council leads this community, organizing seminars and networking events, leveraging initiatives with organizations working towards the similar goals, and supporting the MAIP Department throughout the year.
