Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Omnicom Media Group

Omnicom Media Group

Sara Baiyu Porritt is the Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer at Omnicom Media Group responsible for putting rigor behind the shared Omnicom mission of attaining equal representation, development, support, and retention of all underrepresented groups.

Expanding her advocacy beyond the walls of OMG, Sara is on the board of the 4A’s Foundation supporting diversity, equity and inclusion in the industry; and is a mentor for She Runs It, supporting career development for women in advertising.


As an R&B vocalist and yogi, Sara is a soulful songstress and strong supporter of body positivity and self-love. She has been shattering stereotypes since the age of 17 when she co-launched a record label with a Grammy winning music producer. Since that time, Sara has VJ’ed for MTVu, released 2 EPs and 2 full length albums, and starred in CW’s “The Next” alongside rapper Nelly. Her single “Take A Number” has more than 4 million views on YouTube, and she hit the stage with Wyclef Jean at Advertising Week New York in September of 2019.

In her spare time, Sara is dedicated to capturing and sharing stories of those who have also traversed the road not taken, and is the host and creator of Hear Us Roar⁠—a podcast featuring inspired conversations with fearless Asian women about how ideas and passions can ignite transformative journeys.
