How about creating a list of all of the Head of Diversity and Inclusion folks at some of the top creative agencies...could be useful for a lot of us.

I’ve found a direct correlation between Heads of Diversity and agencies that give them no agency, and therefore have excuses and press releases instead of racial diversity. If someone has a list of Heads of Diversity who have hiring, firing and contracting power however, that’s a list I’d love to see.

Why? Most D&I roles don't come with equity or authority to hire. You can't point at one agency with a CDO, notable or unheard of, that has diversity numbers to get anyone who has seen behind the curtain excited. It's real bleak in these streets.

like

D&I should be integrated into the role of the HR generalist. D&I should be the default--hire, develop, and promote without racial, gender, sexual, age, etc.-bias and foster workplaces where everyone feels included. There needs to be a dedicated person for that role when the problem is so systemic within an organization that it's almost impossible to fix without throwing the whole agency away.

Do most have them? I see them at holding companies more than actual agencies

Isn't BBDO doing well? JD Michaels is EVP in creative and Director of Diversity, has hiring and firing responsibilities, and is part of Omnicom's OPEN network leadership... I've met the man and he seems like the real deal. They also have a supplier diversity role who is also part of OPEN.

You guys are killing me, here.

Why? They don't do anything. Just a stand in to make sure no one sues from the racism they have to put up with. Tell me, how is there one (and only one) Diversity and Inclusion person at an agency and yet black men and woman are not getting promoted as quickly as their white coworkers, not in high position, definitely hard to find in the creative or account services departments, racism is more in your face now than before, etc. Again, I ask why because the people placed in this role do NOTHING.

And media agencies*

I'd guess it's about size... we are about 700 people and we don't have a D&I role, but we do have a committee, and someone who leads that...

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best way to respond to "Well, how many people does this *really* affect?" from a stakeholder? This "Marketer" mindset needs to change, and I know my tone immediately changes for the worse when I hear this response. My most recent answer: "It doesn't matter; it only takes one person to file a claim." That was a knee-jerk reaction; I don't want to make it about the backstop the law provides. It's about inclusion informing better experiences for everyone.

I’m annoyed that a white woman was selected as the leader of the newly created Black Action Council.
