We’re committed to
making a difference.

We want our differences to make a difference in advertising. And we don’t just do it with ads. See how we use our resources and creativity to show some love for causes we believe in.



In America, we vote with our dollars. That’s why we’ve worked with VCU Brandcenter to come up with Black Black Friday, an initiative that encourages consumers to show support for local Black-owned businesses on, you guessed it, Black Friday.

As a creative agency, we’re in the business of ideas. The kind of ideas that have the power to influence culture. So we wanted to make sure we’re using that power thoughtfully by creating an internal team appropriately named I.D.E.A. Its goal is to continually empower Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and above all, Accountability.

Diversity Scholarship

Project 47

The Project 47 pledge asks industry leaders to commit to mentoring one LGBTQ+ employee for one hour each month for one year. With visible leaders providing mentorship, more LGBTQ+ people may raise their hand to be seen and connect. And by proving there are 47 LGBTQ+ people, who feel welcome enough to come out, we’ll factually know our industry needs to do more about inclusion.


600 & Rising

Our President Chris Witherspoon sits on the board of directors for 600 & Rising, a Black advocacy group promoting equity in the agency world. As a supporter of this initiative, DNA has committed to transparency in our diversity and inclusion practices, holding ourselves accountable by making our D&I data public.
