Pilar McQuirter

Pilar is a creative strategist, who designs equitable and inclusive programming for diverse audiences with a culture-first approach. Her ability to empathize with, and uplift different societal lenses is a trademark of work. As a 2019 ADCOLOR FUTURE & a 2015 MAIP Alumni, she proudly champions Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in every aspect of her life and unapologetically infuses this practice into corporate cultures. At Havas Chicago, she was selected by the CEO to represent Chicago in their Global Internal D&I program. Through this, she re-imagined D&I with a non-traditional, culture-first approach. She has co-lead four #BlackAtWork activations, designed a holistic D&I strategy for Havas Chicago and developed Havas Chicago’s first employee resource group, Havas Faces, where she co-leads weekly educational workshops. In her first year of transforming D&I into active practice, she was promoted from Strategist to Talent Program Manager & DEI Lead. Now, she works full time continuing to lead Havas Chicago’s DEI efforts. Born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois, she currently resides in Chicago.
