**SPECIAL UPDATE: WE'LL BE ANNOUNCING 2 AWESOME SURPRISES THIS MONTH! BE SURE TO JOIN US!

The truth is, there's a lack of diversity in the creative industry.

OnRamp = Creative organizations + high school students
For 2 years, an awesome group of individuals has been discussing how to help increase diversity. The solution was OnRamp, and they're changing the creative landscape. OnRamp exposes students to various jobs in our creative industry. Students have the chance to shadow design pros, tour creative epicenters, participate in learning modules and get their hands dirty with real work.

Featured Speaker:
This month we'll hear from Kari McIntyre (http://twitter.com/ahhheavytorch) of MIAD and Temo Xopin (http://twitter.com/xopincreative) of Spanglish Republik, both of whom will speak on behalf of OnRamp.
