SPARKED, an organization designed to promote diversity and inclusion in the creative arts, held a freewheeling panel at MPC in New York to talk about ways to bring about positive change. Part of its SPARKED Connections series of networking events, it featured our very own Flame Artist Bilali Mack Keni Thacker of Wunderman Thompson, Monica Tyson of Taylor James and Cat Gulácsy of ACCESS: VFX.

The conversation, which included a lively Q&A session, was filled with observations, insights and advice on how people working at companies across the creative spectrum, from ad agencies to production companies to post studios, could open doors, create opportunities and provide mentorship, all in an effort to help broaden the talent pool.
