According to a accurate survey by Zippia, a career-focused company, African Americans hold only 7% of tech jobs despite representing 13.6% of the U.S. population. To counter this trend, Adobe is partnering with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to achieve equitable digital tech and creativity skills for African Americans. The company’s goal is to expand the talent pipeline by providing learning and career opportunities to students via mentorship, resources and financial support, to expose students to careers in tech, and to prepare them to achieve their career goals. Two of the most interesting components of Adobe’s investment in HBCUs include the HBCU Ignite Scholarship and a Cybersecurity Internship Program.
Through a partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), Adobe’s HBCU Ignite Scholarship is offering financial assistance up to $15,000 each to 50 eligible students attending HBCUs to fuel innovation and create products that solve challenging problems. The scholarship program addresses the inequitable representation, and lack of access to opportunity and tools that build critical skills in digital literacy.
Scholarship eligibility requirements include being enrolled full-time as an undergraduate student at an HBCU within designated majors, achieving a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, FAFSA submission, financial need, and being a U.S. Citizen or legal permanent resident. Applicants must also submit an essay detailing how they have used creativity and innovation to shape their community. This year’s HBCU Ignite Scholars represent more than 20 HBCUs, including Alabama A&M University, Bowie State University, Florida A&M University, Howard University, Morehouse College, North Carolina A&T State University, Southern University and A&M College, Texas Southern University, Virginia State University, and others.
According to Harry L. Williams, president of TMCF, “We are excited to partner with Adobe’s HBCU Ignite scholarship program. This is an important opportunity for Adobe to help HBCU students display their passion and talent while simultaneously enhancing their creative and digital literacy skills because it will help close the gap and address the inequitable representation in education.”
TMCF, established in 1987, has decades of experience supporting and empowering HBCUs and their student constituents. And, of note, 44% of students at TMCF member schools are majoring in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Adobe sees TMCF as the exact partner to help the tech company to expose African American to careers within the tech industry. Brian Miller, Chief Talent, Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Adobe shared “We are committed to empowering generations of underrepresented minority leaders, entrepreneurs, and creators by advancing equity and opportunity for all through creative literacy and digital skills and experiences to prepare the next generation of workforce talent.”
Despite holding 7% of tech jobs nationwide, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that less than 3% of cybersecurity professionals are African American. Adobe is also focused on changing this percentage. Through collaboration with Bowie State University, an HBCU in Maryland designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education, Adobe’s new cybersecurity internship program will enhance training in cyber defense to protect information resources. Starting in 2023, the one-year internship program provides students with hands-on cybersecurity experience and professional development from Adobe. Students will also receive help launching their careers in cybersecurity.
According to Aminta H. Breaux, president of Bowie State University, “Adobe’s partnership and generous financial support enable us to further provide necessary training, internships and digital tools for diverse students to increase digital literacy across our data sciences and analytics, cyber security and digital media programs, while also pursuing professional creative and technology-focused careers.” Adobe’s contribution will support student scholarships and campus facilities, student and faculty research, and professional development. These supports will help the Bowie students to enter the workforce with digital skills that will put them out in front on the path to success.
Adobe’s Miller stated, “As part of our vision to catalyze ‘Creativity for All,’ Adobe is committed to addressing educational inequities – some of which were widened by the global pandemic – that have led to uneven outcomes for students from underinvested communities. Creative and digital literacy skills can transform students’ success in the classroom, their communities, and the modern workforce.” He added, “We believe creativity empowers transformation and diverse voices are needed to address the challenges of a changing world.”
In 2020, Adobe launched the Taking Action Initiative, a company-wide effort to accelerate representation, development and success of Adobe’s Black community while working to have an impact on the broader landscape of social injustice and economic inequality. This initiative has helped the company grow specific initiatives to mobilize allies from across the company and communities at large. Overall, Adobe’s HBCU strategy focuses on four main areas with dedicated programs helping drive success in student and alumni outcomes – community engagement, learning and training, advocacy and access, and hiring and career development. The company’s goal is to expand the program in the future to support other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs)

The annual level of inflation improved slightly in September but still remains near record-high levels, according to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
The Consumer Price Index (CPI), a measure of inflation, rose 8.2% annually in September, slightly less than the 8.3% increase in August but persistently close to the 40-year high of 9.1% that was set earlier this year, the BLS said. On a monthly basis, inflation rose 0.4%.
Overall, prices for shelter, food and medical care expenses increased in September and were offset by the drop in gasoline prices. The food index rose by 0.8% and the home index increased by 0.7%, the same level of increase seen in August.
"The Fed is trying to get inflation under control, but you wouldn't know that looking at today's CPI data," John Leer, Morning Consult's chief economist said in a tweet. "While energy prices are falling, services inflation in shelter and transportation is running hot, forcing consumers to make tough spending decisions through year-end."
If you are struggling with high inflation, you could consider taking out a personal loan to pay down debt at a lower interest rate, reducing your monthly payments. Visit Credible to find your personalized interest rate without affecting your credit score.

The "hotter-than-expected" inflation numbers mean that the Federal Reserve is likely to "stay the course with interest rate increases," according to Robert R. Johnson, Ph.D., CFA, CAIA and a finance professor at Creighton University's Heider College of Business.
"This Fed has repeatedly stated that they will be data dependent and today's data provides fuel to the Fed to be more hawkish regarding rate hikes," Johnson said. "Expect at least another 75 basis point hike in the target Fed funds rate following the meeting on Nov. 1-2."
The Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 75 basis points at its last meeting in September. The rate hike brought the federal funds rate to a targeted range of 3% to 3.25%, and the Fed said it remained "strongly committed to returning inflation to its 2% objective."
If you are looking for ways to cut back on your monthly expenses, paying down debt could be a good place to start. You could consider obtaining a personal loan to help consolidate your monthly payments and pay down debt at a lower interest rate.

Higher interest rates, inflation and an increased cost of living could make for a difficult holiday season, Johnson said.
"These higher prices will reduce demand for products and we will likely see softer retail numbers this holiday season," he said.
And if the Federal Reserve does indeed continue to raise rates, increased financing and borrowing costs will add to consumer expenses, according to Tomas J. Philipson, the Daniel Levin Chair of Public Policy at The University of Chicago.
"Both goods purchased for the holidays as well as buying them on credit will become more expensive than what was expected," Philipson said.
However, another expert predicted that goods and prices would likely moderate as retailers aggressively cut inventories. "Expect lots of sales at retailers during the holiday season," Gene Goldman, chief investment officer at Cetera Investment Management, said.
Adobe Analytics released a forecast for online sales for November and December, which said "massive discounts" were expected for internet purchases this holiday season. The biggest discounts are expected to hit between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday.
If you're looking to save money amid high inflation, you could consider refinancing your private student loans to a lower interest rate, reducing your monthly payment. Visit Credible to compare multiple student loan lenders at once and choose the one with the best interest rate for you.

Online prices fell 0.2% on an annual basis in September, while rising 0.8% month-over-month
Electronics and computer prices fell sharply, along with modest price decreases in toys and sporting goods
Grocery prices hit another record high, while pet products and tools/home improvement prices remained elevated
SAN JOSE, Calif., October 12, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Adobe (Nasdaq:ADBE) announced the latest online inflation data from the Adobe Digital Price Index (DPI), powered by Adobe Analytics. In September 2022, online prices fell 0.2% year-over-year (YoY) while rising 0.8% month-over-month (MoM). In the month prior (Aug. 2022), online prices increased 0.4% YoY. In July 2022, e-commerce had entered deflation for the first time after 25 consecutive months of rising prices, dropping 1% YoY.

Price Table (Graphic: Business Wire)
Prices for electronics, the largest category in e-commerce with 18.6% share of spend in 2021, fell sharply and decreased 11.3% YoY (down 1.2% MoM). This is a greater YoY decrease than August (down 10% YoY) and July (down 9.3% YoY). Prices for computers also fell significantly and decreased 14.1% YoY (down 1.9% MoM), greater than the month prior when prices fell 12.6% YoY. The September price decreases for electronics and computers are both record lows in 2022.
Prices for food have remained high, with grocery prices rising 14.3% YoY (up 0.8% MoM), another record YoY high and the largest increase of any category. Prices for pet products also remain elevated, increasing 11.8% YoY (up 0.01% MoM). Other categories that saw prices jump in September include tools/home improvement (up 10.5% YoY, up 0.3% MoM) and apparel (up 4.7% YoY, up 6.6% MoM)—another major category in e-commerce, second only to electronics.
The DPI provides the most comprehensive view into how much consumers pay for goods online, as e-commerce expands to new categories and as brands focus on making the digital economy personal. Powered by Adobe Analytics, it analyzes one trillion visits to retail sites and over 100 million SKUs across 18 product categories: electronics, apparel, appliances, books, toys, computers, groceries, furniture/bedding, tools/home improvement, home/garden, pet products, jewelry, medical equipment/supplies, sporting goods, personal care products, flowers/related gifts, non-prescription drugs and office supplies.
In September, 11 of the 18 categories tracked by the DPI saw YoY price increases, with groceries rising the most. Price drops were observed in seven categories: electronics, jewelry, books, toys, flowers/related gifts, computers and sporting goods.
Eight of the 18 categories in the DPI saw price increases MoM. Price drops were observed across ten categories including electronics, personal care products, jewelry, books, furniture/bedding, toys, home/garden, appliances, computers and sporting goods.
Notable Categories in the Adobe Digital Price Index for September:
Electronics: Prices were down 11.3% YoY (down 1.2% MoM), falling faster than pre-pandemic levels when electronic prices fell 9.1% YoY on average between 2015 and 2019. Prices have fallen consistently since Dec. 2021 (down 2.6% YoY) and accelerated in accurate months (down 10% YoY in August, down 9.3% YoY in July).
Computers: Prices were down 14.1% YoY (down 1.9% MoM), the biggest drop since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Computer prices have fallen online for 21 consecutive months, and now outpace pre-pandemic levels when prices fell 9.2% on average between 2015 and 2019.
Groceries: Prices continued to surge and rose 14.3% YoY (up 0.8% MoM), more than any other category. It is a new record on an annual basis, following a series of record highs: 14.1% YoY increase in August, 13.4% YoY increase in July, 12.4% YoY increase in June. Grocery prices have risen for 32 consecutive months, and it remains the only category to move in lockstep with the Consumer Price Index on a long-term basis.
Pet Products: Prices were up 11.8% YoY (up 0.01% MoM), slightly below the record YoY high in the month prior (up 12.7% YoY in August). Online inflation for pet products has now been observed for 29 consecutive months, as pet ownership surged during the COVID-19 pandemic and demand for related goods remains high.
The DPI is modeled after the Consumer Price Index (CPI), published by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and uses the Fisher Price Index to track online prices. The Fisher Price Index uses quantities of matched products purchased in the current period (month) and a previous period (previous month) to calculate the price changes by category. Adobe’s analysis is weighted by the real quantities of the products purchased in the two adjacent months.
Powered by Adobe Analytics, Adobe uses a combination of Adobe Sensei, Adobe’s AI and machine learning framework, and manual effort to segment the products into the categories defined by the CPI manual. The methodology was first developed alongside renowned economists Austan Goolsbee and Pete Klenow.
Adobe Analytics is part of Adobe Experience Cloud, which over 85% of the top 100 internet retailers in the U.S.* rely upon to deliver, measure and personalize shopping experiences online.

Welcome to Ad Age Datacenter Weekly, our data-obsessed newsletter for marketing and media professionals.
“VideoAmp is rolling out second-by-second ad viewership as a deal currency, drawing on experience with Paramount’s BET as an early adopter measuring viewership not only of commercials but also longer-form branded content during its BET Awards last summer,” Ad Age’s Jack Neff reports.
The details: VideoAmp’s measurement, Neff notes, “combines input from smart TVs and cable or satellite set-top boxes covering more than 39 million homes.”
Essential context: “Second-by-second reporting for TV—in all its many forms—is still relatively rare for use as currency in deals, as ratings from Nielsen are still done based on average commercial minute viewing across programs or commercial pods,” Neff notes. “But Nielsen last year announced plans to roll out individual commercial measurements (still planned as part of the rollout of Nielsen One later this year, a spokesman said). And other measurement firms—including Comscore and iSpot.tv—previously have touted their ability to measure ads on a second-by-second basis.”
“Adobe is launching a marketing mix modeling service that uses artificial intelligence to assess return on investment in weeks rather than the months it typically takes for such analytics,” Ad Age’s Jack Neff reports.
The details: “Marketers can use the tool, which will be generally available as part of the Adobe Experience Cloud, to adjust media and marketing plans on the fly, or at least within a month or quarter, rather than taking a retrospective look at what happened in the past to adjust future spending.”
Essential context: “Adobe’s move comes as marketing mix modeling (MMM) enjoys a renaissance after years of losing ground to multi-touch attribution (MTA),” Neff adds. “Making the AI tool available across an already huge base of Adobe could fuel the growth of MMM further.”
After we ran an item last week titled “Harry Styles’ mega fame by the numbers,” a bunch of Datacenter Weekly readers told us that they knew Styles was popular, but didn’t realize he was that popular. Well, folks, brace yourself for a few more bullet points:
• With Styles’ single “As It Was” having racked up 15 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, he is now the longest-reigning British artist to hold that distinction, having dethroned Elton John, whose 1997 “Candle in the Wind” spent 14 weeks at No. 1.
• The 2021 portion of Styles’ continuing “Love on Tour” stadium concert tour grossed nearly $95 million from 720,000 tickets sold across 42 shows—but the artist’s momentum has only accelerated since then. Last year, for instance, Styles was able to sell out New York City’s Madison Square Garden for five nights, but in returning to the iconic venue this past August, he sold out 15 nights (as we noted last week). But there’s more—much more: The 2022 leg of “Love on Tour” includes not only an additional 42 North American shows (which started in August and continue through November), but the 23 shows he played in Europe in July and August, as well as 14 shows coming up in Latin America in November and December.
• It’s entirely reasonable to expect that “Love on Tour” will bring in at least an additional $155 million or so by the end of 2022, which would bring the combined 2021-2022 gross above the quarter-billion-dollar mark. (Side note: “Love on Tour” continues in 2023 with dates in Australia—and Europe once again.)

Joel Bervell's parents, who immigrated to the United States from Ghana, always joked with him that there were only three acceptable career choices: medicine, law, and engineering.
Although the 27-year-old did choose to pursue medicine and is now training to become a doctor at Washington State University, he didn't anticipate an additional career as a content creator.
Labeling himself as social media's "medical mythbuster," Bervell has almost 475,000 followers on TikTok and 118,000 followers on Instagram. His content primarily focuses on racial disparities in healthcare, breaking down concepts like how Black women are more likely to die during childbirth and the racial bias in forehead thermometers.
"When my videos started exploding, I realized that there's an open market for me to talk about health equity issues," he told Insider. "I think medicine is hard for a lot of people to understand, but when you can show what it actually looks like, then it begins to actually make sense."
Since January 2022, he's made $210,530 from paid opportunities with brands like Neutrogena, Google, and Meta, according to documentation Verified by Insider. A key factor in landing some of these deals has been a media kit he first created in 2021, which he calls his "influencer resume."
In the two-page document, he includes a bio, engagement analytics, audience makeup, and links to previous news coverage and partnerships to showcase the value he would bring to a potential brand deal.
Bervell charges a minimum of $4,000 per video, and he negotiates with brands directly via email since he doesn't have an agent or manager. He charges that minimum rate based on a guideline he stumbled across when he first started making money from social media — charge 1% of your following. For example, when he had 50,000 followers on TikTok, he charged brands a minimum of $500.
"I'm a medical student with a quarter of a million dollars in debt," he said. "This is a way to sustain my lifestyle and get paid while also doing what I love."
One of the biggest deals he's been able to secure with the media kit was a partnership with Neutrogena earlier this year. The skincare, hair, and cosmetics line owned by Johnson & Johnson paid him to create Instagram Reels and TikToks alongside other types of content.
Here's the latest version of his media kit:
This page reads:
Joel Bervell is a medical student, digital educator, and internationally recognized public speaker on health equity. He is working to right the racial injustice and lack of healthcare access in the United States by harnessing the power of social media. An advocate for health equity, social justice, and anti-racism in medicine, Joel teaches his audience of over 500K individuals on social media about disparities that continue to manifest in medicine.
He has been invited to speak at Congressional Hearings, Google, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, SXSW, and more. His local and national exposure include NPR, Yahoo News, and published academic work in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. In 2021 he was named to TikTok's inaugural Discover List and selected as the 2021 Voice of Change.
He is an appointed member of the White House's Healthcare Leaders in Social Media Roundtable, an NMQF 2022 40 Under 40 Leader in Minority Health, and a member of the World Health Organization's Operation Fides.

Unlike many creators who hire designers or use Adobe or Canva, Bervell created the first version of his media kit using Apple Pages when he was part of the incubator program TikTok for Black Creatives in February 2021. One of the assignments in the three month course was to design a brand kit, and he googled what other media kits were like to get inspiration.
"Visual components matter more than you think," he said. "Blue is more calm and trusting, and I wanted to get that trust from brands as a medical professional."
The decision of where to place the information is based on Bervell anticipating what questions brands would ask him if he was in a meeting with them in person.
He begins with his bio, which helps lay out ways he can partner with a brand besides content creation, such as consulting. He then moves on to his following, followed by news outlets he's been featured in and the partnerships he's already done.
The second page of the media kit goes into the analytics. 81% of Bervell's audience identifies as female, and 78% of viewers come from the US. In the 60-day period in question (March 12 to May 10), he gained 70,700 followers, garnered 6.4 million video views, and 1.4 million likes.
He uses the built-in analytics tools that Instagram and TikTok provide to gather this data, but also goes a step further and reads every comment on his Reels and TikToks to better understand who follows him, why they do so, and what they want to see next.
"Sometimes, you have to do the hunt yourself," he said. "A lot of people self-identify their careers in the comments, so it helps me understand what they want. I use that when I'm pitching brands."
The slide lists physicians, nurses, health professionals, students, and medical students as some of Bervell's followers.
He ends his media kit with videos that showcase the versatility of his content instead of the ones with the highest engagement. He made this choice so that brands can see that a variety of formats — talking, not talking, following the guidelines of a sponsored post, and more — perform well for him.
