ASMP has decided to postpone our Online Portfolio Review event scheduled for June 23rd. It was to be part of a series of events designed to give back to our members during June, our Member Appreciation Month. After a review of our process of assembling the event we realized that in producing it we did not give equitable opportunity to creatives in the BIPOC community.
ASMP is an industry leader. We want to lead by example. That example should be one of inclusivity and diversity.
We will reschedule the Online Portfolio Review event when we can produce it in a way that reflects the diversity, equity and inclusion we would like to see in our industry. We believe the re-envisioned event will help build a more equitable industry for BIPOC creators.
