This summer, Jennifer Cuffari BIC '19 will be heading to Dallas to participate in the competitive Marcus Graham Project iCR8™ Summer Bootcamp where she'll join 12 other awardees to form a pop-up agency to provide consultancy for a select non-profit organization as well as a large corporation and a start-up. As one of BIC's stellar art directors in the Creative Track, Jen had been honored last year by The LAGRANT Foundation with a scholarship as well as a 3-day pre-professional development workshop and networking event in New York City.

Jen follows BIC alums from the Class of 2019, Natalie Alcide and Kelvin Morales, who worked on a MGP project last summer with Procter & Gamble which led to a produced social campaign to encourage more diverse perspectives. Running in February 2019, it was not only created by Natalie and Kelvin, but prominently featured them.

ABOUT The Marcus Graham Project: Inspired by a blog written by Tiffany R. Warren, Chief Diversity Officer of The Omnicom Group and Founder of the AdColor Industry Coalition, the goal of the Marcus Graham Project's iCR8 Summer Boot Camp is to identify opportunities in the industry and those interested in pursuing them. The curriculum design was inspired by the 1969 Agency Primer written by Bill Sharp entitled, “How to Be Black And Get a Job in The Advertising Business Anyway.” Approaching its 9th year, the Marcus Graham Project’s experiential learning methodology is specifically designed to provide diverse aspirants in the field of marketing and media, including advertising, PR & social media with the exposure and experience necessary to solidify careers within the industry.
