2020 CDDP-Commercial Directors Diversity Program 3rd Cycle

COVID-19 Response

Due to COVID-19 we will be pushing the start date of our 3rd cycle to January 2020. Please Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Instagram and Twitter as that is how we will be sharing the majority of our information. We will be in direct contact with Fellows and Finalists for the 3rd cycle of the CDDP prior to January 2021

2020 CDDP FELLOWS

This third cycle of the Program was pushed to start in early 2021 because of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The five directing fellows will participate in a six-month program that will provide them with experience and exposure to the inner workings of commercial and other marketing content production.

OUR MISSION

The CDDP's mission is to foster awareness and increase directing opportunities for women and other historically underrepresented groups of people through a targeted program of outreach, mentorship and exposure.

OUR GOALS

The Program continues to build on our commitment to shining light on under-represented directors and helping them move closer to working consistently as commercial/content directors, signing with AICP companies and becoming DGA members.
