Iesha White is a programmatic media expert with over 10 years experience working for companies like Tinuiti, Sony Pictures, Xaxis, PureCars, etc. She walks us through the importance of multicultural targeting in programmatic advertising and how to implement accordingly. We cover some essential discussion points including why a person’s identity isn’t brand unsafe!!!!!!! (yes, we had to explain why excluding keywords such as “black” or “asian” or “queer” is unacceptable and simply wrong!!!). Another important focus was why consider adding multicultural media and how it can affect the bottom line for brands.
