How Tahira White of 19th & Park, Owns It
In this episode of Own It, we’ve got something new and special for you. Our conversations about closing the gender gap in advertising agency ownership shouldn’t be limited to just one person asking the questions. So I’ve asked Carrie Kerpen, who you heard me talk to a few weeks ago, to step in and host an episode. Not only will she host from time to time, but so will many others who are active in our community. Today is just the first of many conversations from and with all of you. This week, Carrie talks to Tahira White of 19th & Park. That firm evolved from Tahira’s production work for now business partner Whitney Headen, who at the time was working at Essence. Tahira tells the story behind the agency and name, which isn’t quite what you think. But then digs in deep to how they are attacking the diversity in staffing and creative output in truly innovative ways. Tahira also shares the secrets to getting in the room to work with the biggest brands in the world. You’re really going to enjoy this conversation.
