At the annual Diversity Achievement Mosaic Awards ceremony, Maurice Lévy, Chairman and CEO of Publicis Groupe, was honored with the Diversity Pioneer award, the highest distinction given at this occasion.
Launched in 2001 by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) and the Mosaic Center, an integrated sector of the AAF, the Mosaic Awards mission is to promote diversity in the communications industry by valorizing the efforts and achievements in multicultural marketing.
Publicis Groupe and its agencies participate actively in these efforts, notably across its various projects driven by the Groupe Diversity Council in the United States, which brings together the Diversity Managers of the various agencies and networks of the Groupe around common projects.
This is the first time that the Diversity Pioneer Award has been given to a non-American leader of a communications group.
Maurice Lévy said, “Our Groupe is very attached to a simple, yet strong, set of values—honesty, integrity, and respect for others. This award from the AAF is a recognition of what sets our group apart, expressed through our motto ‘Viva la Difference!’. Success in Diversity and Inclusion is a long road, daily, collective and individual, because each and every person must partake. I am very honored to receive this award, which also goes for the ensemble of our teams and talents.”view more - Hires, Wins & Business
