Pan Galactic is committed to amplifying Black voices in the field of digital marketing. While we do not have all the answers on how to make this happen, in support of this goal, the agency is offering a $1,000 scholarship to a Black student pursuing a career in digital marketing. The team at Pan Galactic will also offer mentorship to the scholarship winner, including meeting with them and sharing contacts in the marketing industry in order to support the winner in expanding their career network. We understand the systemic barriers Black students face and want to do our part to make the marketing industry more inclusive and racially diverse. Incremental representation of Black voices in our field will contribute toward this goal.
