For two decades, Advertising Age has been recognizing women who have made indelible contributions to the worlds of media, marketing and advertising.
This year’s class kicks off the next decade with an impressive group of achievers who are making a mark on the industry and are helping to shape it for the future. These are the women inspiring the next generation of leaders.
From AdAge.com: “Ever since getting her foot in the door with Disney’s “Tangled” in 2010, Shanté Bacon’s 135th Street Agency has done communications and experiential work for the top studios in Hollywood.
Most recently, the shop supported the release of Paramount Pictures’ “Daddy’s Home,” starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, and Warner Bros.’ “Keanu” with Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key. Next up, Ms. Bacon, who served as senior director of marketing at Island Def Jam Music Group prior to creating 135th, said she wants to “make more headway into the tech industry.” The shop won Google’s African-American communications business at the end of March, and one of its first efforts on the account was holding a roundtable in early May to connect the tech giant with key influencers, thought leaders and media members.”
Shante will be celebrated at an awards luncheon on August 3, 2016 from 11:30AM – 2:00PM at Cipriani 42nd Street in NY.
