CD1: if you don’t understand why, in an industry where merely 10% of CDs are women, then just fuck off. Every other candidate we have met have been men, that’s why. Of course it’s not in the companies’ requirements or job description, it’s just something I care about. (PS: I’m a man.)

Why bonus points for being a woman? Reverse discrimination is just as bad. Recently agencies are running to hire women even if there is a stronger male candidate and that’s a concern too.

@AD 1 Joel was one of my first ad school teachers. He taught me so much. Super smart and funny - such a good dude. He's not a woman but I am! @CD 1 I agree. The best candidate should get the job. Even tho it prob means I have a leg up, the reverse discrimination annoys the hell outta me.

My answer to both your questions WOULD be Jaime Robinson but she started her own agency. Joel would make a great ECD though, he’s already GCD at Matayzyk Hoffer.
