We are your partner in building a more diverse and inclusive workplace.

Partnership can look a lot of different ways with The BrandLab, from hosting a field trip, to hiring our interns, to hosting Fearless workshops. It takes a village of partner high schools, corporations, and agencies to break down barriers for the next generation of marketing talent. Join ours!

Fearlessly breaking down barriers at all levels.

We not only introduce the idea of a creative career to students, we partner with the very industry they hope to end up in. Our Fearless program works to ensure that the talent we discover in our Spark and Internship program are not only able to secure their first professional job, but that they will want to stay in that job. We do this by addressing systemic bias within the industry through workshops and action plans.

You can’t ask for a job that you don’t know exists, which is why The BrandLab introduces high school students to the world of marketing. Our innovative Spark Workshops bring the industry to the classroom, and by hosting a field trip, brings the classroom to the industry. Field trips are where we see the spark ignite - the idea of a creative career becomes a real possibility. (Currently only available in the Twin Cities and Kansas City)
