The organization also works to advance research and understanding that broaden the discipline of marketing. Through MEFA's collaboration with the PhD Project, a program of the KPMG Foundation, the group seeks to increase the recruitment and retention of under-represented ethnic faculty in marketing and related business disciplines. Additionally, MEFA fosters a greater awareness and appreciation of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in business schools and other higher education institutions. The new MEFA leadership includes:
MEFA members also benefit from the organization's collective knowledge, intellectual prowess, and applied experiences of professionals who want to expand and ensure the visibility, influence, and future prospects for academicians, scholars, and practitioners of color in marketing and related fields.
Future MEFA events in 2020 include the organization's annual conference this August and in association with The PhD Project, a nationwide collaboration with the global advertising agency, VMLY&R, along with online member webinars.
