Six Prominent Industry Innovators Join Forces to Form DE&I Advisory Board
New York, NY – February 3, 2021: New York Festivals International Advertising Awards® (NYFA) announced the first NYF DE&I Advisory Board created to bring diversity, equity and inclusion to all facets of NYFA’s juries and programs.
Destiny K. Chambers, VP, Head of Marketing, Lippe Taylor, will chair the six-person board who together will ensure that the competition’s juries are diverse and inclusive and that entries into the new 3D DE&I Specialty Award will be judged fairly and thoughtfully.
“We are extremely grateful to Destiny K. Chambers and the entire DE&I Advisory Board,” said Scott Rose, Executive Director, New York Festivals Advertising Awards. “Their contribution to the creation of the 3D DE&I Awards is paramount and will allow NYF to celebrate and showcase important work created to celebrate diverse, equitable and inclusive work.”
Destiny Chambers brings years of industry experience to the DE&I Advisory Board. As Chair of the New York Festivals Advertising DE&I Board, she will preside over the board and 3D award jury members. The Advisory Board members will also join the panel to judge the new DE+I Specialty Award. Her collaborative leadership approach honed while working with industry and social justice organizations will provide the board with support and ensure that DE&I work from agencies around the globe is recognized and rewarded.
“This is an important step not only for NYF, but industry awards at large. The depth and thoughtful nature of the 3D Award criteria will be a differentiator among DE&I awards and a needle pusher for how we identify, recognize, and celebrate truly diverse, equitable and inclusive work. The board selection process has also been one of thoughtful curation. Bringing in marketing and advertising leaders who have made marks on the industry and their communities but have at times been as unseen as the distinguishing elements we call for in these submissions.”—Destiny Chambers, VP, Head of Marketing, Lippe Taylor

The 2022 3D DE+I Work of the Year Specialty Award honors work, individuals and organizations that are taking meaningful steps to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive society.

Entries into the 3D DE&I Specialty Award will be judged by the Advisory Board and additional jury members who will be invited to participate on this esteemed panel.
