WATCH CAA AMPLIFY'S TOWN HALL TODAY

CAA is hosting a special CAA Amplify virtual Town Hall will be held today (6/17) at 2pm PT focusing on dismantling systemic racism in business and culture. RSVP here for the session. 

Building upon Amplify’s legacy of creating multicultural opportunity and connection for multicultural artists, business leaders and activists, the event will bring together executives from leading organizations in entertainment, sports, media, brands, technology and social justice in a call to action to end the systemic racism that has consistently oppressed black people. The discussions aim to provide critical action steps for real and permanent change.

Featured event speakers and appearances, among others, will include: 

Carmelo Anthony, NBA All-Star, Entrepreneur, and Philanthropist
Joy Buolamwini, Founder of Algorithmic Justice League
Christian Cooper, Biomedical Editor and Comic Book Writer
Melody Cooper, Film, Television, Theater and Comic Book Writer

"This is the moment to turn words of support and belief into actions that create momentum, actions that become habits, and habits that become the change that is necessary.  It is up to all of us—no matter how well-intentioned we may have been in the past—to do the honest, sobering and essential work of dismantling systemic racism, including in our own organizations," said Richard Lovett, President of CAA.  "We are grateful to the presenters and guests joining today’s conversation, and hope the gathering plays even a small role in encouraging a more informed business community to become better partners and advocates for black colleagues, artists, and industry peers."

Most recently, the agency appointed CAA’s Co-Head of Basketball Marketing and Servicing and CAA Sports leader Lisa Joseph-Metelus to the CAA Board, the agency’s new leadership structure formed in January, underscoring the company’s continued growth and next-generation strategy.
