NEW YORK, NY

session will be moderated by Jeffrey Bowman, a Partner within the
Marketing Strategy practice at Ogilvy North America, and will feature
such well known social media evangelizers as Baratunde Thurston, Denise
Jacobs, Nichelle Stephens and Lynne d Johnson.

“Partnering
with SXSWi to create the festival’s first diversity driven event builds
awareness of the tremendous talent and thought leadership in the
technology space strategist,” explained Jeffrey Bowman of Ogilvy. “The
attendees and the event expand on both the festival and the agency’s
efforts to foster greater diversity and inclusion within the industry.”

SXSW
is seeking to promote diversity and inclusion as a cornerstone of the
Festival and has created a series of panels that feature diverse
thought leaders within the festival. The“Blacks in Technology Meet-Up”
