CAA Amplify is part of the Hollywood talent agency's bid in recent years to bring more women and non-white talent to its client roster and ranks.
"This year, we’re excited to build on our collaboration with our philanthropic arm, the CAA Foundation, to program conversations around social and cultural issues, and provide guests with the tools and resources they need to make a positive impact on our world," Ruben Garcia, executive, multicultural business development, said in a statement.
