Purple Group is intentionally diverse. Our team composition consists of 54% Hispanic, 31% White and 15% Black individuals. For us, diversity and equity does not stop there, as we also have team members from the LGBTQ+ community, various generations (inclusive of Gen X, Gen Y/millennials and Gen Z) and different religions. Additionally, many of our team members are originally from other countries, such as Puerto Rico, Mexico, Romania and the Netherlands.

Furthermore, in 2022, we introduced a Rising Marketer program, a pilot aimed at recruiting college graduates of color into the marketing and advertising industry. These individuals are highly intelligent and are being trained internally through every day experiences.
