Thanks to The BrandLab, I have come to realize that it is okay to be unapologetically fierce when it comes to my career. - Lydia Xiong, BrandLab Intern 2015-2016, Colle+McVoy + Land O' Lakes, Inc.

About Us

The BrandLab's vision is a marketing industry that thrives on the insights and creativity of people with diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. We introduce, guide and prepare diverse students for creative careers. We believe that every student has potential regardless of his or her background.

Creativity. An equal opportunity employer.


  • You can’t ask for a job if you don’t know it exists. That’s why The BrandLab meets high school students in the classroom. Through an innovative, experiential curriculum, students learn about every aspect of the industry.


  • Our paid internship program is about getting into the workplace, growing 21st century skills, and developing that first professional network. Students receive intensive training and coaching led by industry professionals to support and guide their career path.


  • Taking away barriers and building a bridge to that first job is critical. That’s why our Connect program provides thousands of dollars in college scholarships, ongoing mentorship and training sessions, and advanced internships for young talent hungry for more experience.


  • In order to thrive, our rising stars need to enter workplaces free from bias and exclusion. Through our Fearless programs – a combination of workshops, events, podcast, and consulting – we work with our partners to ensure that both the workplace and work being produced are culturally competent and equitable.
