Are there any Creative Directors in here? I have been talking to a few folks and asking my white, Hispanic, and Asian colleagues if they have ever seen a black CD. It’s either no or they don’t recall.

Hi 👋🏾

I spend a lot of my time now mentoring to make sure that people starting their careers have someone above them who looks like them which is something I've never had.

Hey! 👋🏽 Like M&M’s we do exist! I’ve created a list of all of the black CD’s with help from another brotha. It’s not that lengthy as you would imagine, and slims down drastically when you hit SVP to ECD and CCO.

Happy to connect. Shoot me a message here and we can move out of her to chat. I mentor a lot of brothas and sistas that are creatives. Happy to help. As for the list, I’m working with another friend on it now and at some point sooner than later we will make it public. Just refining it for now.

Thank you for posting this. I’m writing an article about diversity in our industry now. People of Color account for less than 4% of senior and above positions in our business. Let’s keep talking about this.

No problem!
We as a people should try to reach back and assist or educate those of us who are receptive to the lessons, guidelines, or perspective. Advertising seems like tv/film where we are still just a pinch of seasoning to assist the flavor of the story.

I find that rather strange. I have been aware that we’re like tokens in advertising, especially Pharma, but never realized I have never bumped into a black CD.

Confused if parents want schools to reopen or not?

What’s the general consensus?
