The Jodi Harris Scholarship

Returning in 2024 | In partnership with AB InBev

This is your moment to honour a legacy of diversity, opportunity and excellence. The Jodi Harris Scholarship is back for Cannes Lions 2024.

Following a successful inaugural edition at last year’s Festival, we’re proud to be accepting 10 emerging marketing leaders back into the Scholarship this year alongside the team at AB InBev. Offering a fully-funded, curated programme – including exclusive sessions with industry thought leaders and the AB InBev executive marketing team, and VIP access to Festival content and the Awards shows.

As Global VP of Marketing Culture & Capabilities, Jodi Harris led by example at AB InBev. After her passing in May 2022, she left behind a legacy of championing creativity in the marketing industry – with a particular focus on diversity, and opportunities for marketers from underrepresented backgrounds. The Jodi Harris Scholarship keeps this legacy alive for any client-side marketers whose own legacies are in the making.
