Did anyone read Adweek’s 29 Rising Stars list? Who knew the business was so female, so Asian, so LGBTQ, so African American? A true smorgasbord of fig leaves, showing how complicit the trade press is.

Oh and how about the "Creative Catalyst" at Anomoly, who has a streetwear company and is difficult to define in traditional creative terms? Great, great. I'm still gonna need somebody to comp up these static banners...

Yeah I just read it and thought the same thing. There was a WK writer who didnt even have any specific work mentioned, just his "personal connection to powerade," and another woman who just linked to her "instagram for LBGTQ issues," and another guy who "is a dad and a DJ." Not to mention all the "work" for pro bono clients or agency self promotion.

Im not saying ANY work ANYone of ANY color in advertising is doing is more interesting or worthy.... but I know horseshit when I see it.

Woah, easy there CD. How can you even think that such a well respected trade pub like Adweek could or would ever have an agenda? Plenty of sarcasm intended

I’m sure they’re not undeserving but publications are pushing the ‘diversity’ card haaaaard. And I’m an Asian female saying this.

Uhhh @BBDO1, the WK CD Max Stinson has the best book of anyone on that list (www.maxstinson.com), maybe do a little research before you slam people’s work because now you sound like you have a personal connection to hatertade.

CD1, you nailed it. But it's not just Advertising. Check out Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People, or any other list. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but there's definitely a hardcore mandate to mix it up.

I thought it was cool seeing a CD from Africa on the top 100 list. Mandate or not, these people are not any less deserving because they are minorities and you don't recognize their campaign or the title of "creative catalyst"

Hey everyone. I recently excepted a safety position with a software dev. company. The workforce is largely hybrid/remote. I’m having a hard time finding items to address.
