WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) announces the selection of Tiffany R. Warren, Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer of Omnicom Group, as the recipient of the association's 2014 Pat Tobin Award.
"Tiffany R. Warren is a giant in the media industry. As the Senior Vice President & Chief Diversity Officer for the Omnicom Group, a global communications and marketing company, she has helped her company to remain an industry leader by embracing diversity as not just the right thing to do, but as something which gives them a distinct competitive advantage," said NABJ President Bob Butler. "While climbing the ladder of success, Tiffany has endeavored to break down the barriers facing others from underrepresented backgrounds. She is founder and President of ADCOLOR®, a non-profit which supports diversity and inclusivity in the advertising, marketing, public relations, entertainment, and media industries."
Named the Omnicom Group's first-ever Chief Diversity Officer in 2009, Warren was previously the Vice President of Multicultural Programs and Community Outreach at Arnold Worldwide, a leading advertising agency. At age 25 she became the youngest Manager of Diversity Programs at the American Association of Advertising Agencies where she worked for six years. Warren began her career as an assistant account executive at Arnold Worldwide and at Hill Holliday, another advertising agency.
"It is so fitting that NABJ is honoring Tiffany R. Warren with this prestigious award. Much like Pat Tobin, Tiffany is a connector who brings people together. In her case she bought together ad agencies, media companies, and industry groups, which support diversity in media, and she implored them to not just discuss diversity, but to take action to actively support making the media landscape more diverse. ADCOLOR's commitment to highlighting the achievements of those already in the industry as a way of continuing a pipeline of success stands very much in line with what NABJ itself strives to do," said NABJ Associate Member Representative Dawn Roberts.
Named for the pioneering publicist, media entrepreneur, and co-founder of the National Black Public Relations Society, the Pat Tobin Award honors a public relations, advertising, marketing professional, or media owner who serves as a trailblazer in the media industry affecting the positive representation of African Americans in the media and directing change in the media industry at large. Warren will be honored along with NABJ's other honorees at NABJ's Salute to Excellence Gala on August 2, 2014, during NABJ's 39th Annual Convention and Career Fair in Boston.
An advocacy group established in 1975 in Washington, D.C., NABJ is the largest organization for journalists of color in the nation, and provides career development as well as educational and other support to its members worldwide. For additional information, please visit, www.nabj.org.
