The Education forum focuses on amplifying diversity, equity, and inclusion by teaching employees the tools to increase self-awareness and broaden their perspectives. The Education forum is part of Ovative’s greater ELEVATE leadership and development program and specifically focuses on the following formats:
Ovative’s Services initiative empowers employees to use their unique marketing skills and provide Ovative’s full set of offerings to social benefit organizations in the community.
Team members have the opportunity to drive impact by volunteering part of their time at work to participate in these pro bono projects. Their time and skills help these organizations amplify their impactful messages.
Ovative has already provided Services to improve food security (Groveland Food Shelf, SNAP), support equal education (The Page Amendment), change how disabilities are perceived (The Arc, Special Olympics Minnesota), and are underway on additional projects.
The Charitable Giving program encourages employees to find ways they can make an impact outside of Ovative’s walls. Ovative’s program includes:
Ovative’s The BrandLab Scholarship is a yearly, employee-funded $10,000 award going to a deserving student from the program. The BrandLab’s mission is to change the face and voice of the marketing industry. We deeply believe in their vision that our industry thrives with the creativity and insights of all.
