@SVP but let's remember who typically is more likely to have 30k to shell out for portfolio school? On top of undergrad. Portfolio schools are by design fairly exclusionary. Agencies/holding cos should set up more scholarship funds.

That’s what I keep saying. We need more Asians, Latinos, Blacks, women, etc. Diversity shouldn’t be limited to a few extra black people in the agency as if that makes it “diverse”.

Most black college students can’t spend 100K on an education that will land them an entry level job with a salary in the low to mid 40s. And there is a direct link to familial wealth that has to be acknowledged when you discuss that.

Let’s discuss it deeper— let’s discuss that colleges, sure need to recruit more black students into creative fields. THEN let’s discuss how most black college students are first or second gen college students in their families and are mostly going to college for engineering, sciences, medicine etc because they have to account for 400+ years of lost familial wealth. Then come back and make another post! Cheers

For creatives, it comes down to qualified candidates coming out of schools. There just aren’t as many. And I believe minority candidates get a good look when they show up, and may be at an advantage given the latest climate. But on average, the numbers aren’t there. A schools need to do a better job recruiting minorities into creative fields as well

Does anyone notice there has been an increase of Asian Americans suddenly trying to benefit from initiatives fought for by Black Americans while claiming their struggle trumps that of Black Americans? I find it strange. At my firm, I am a senior exec who have seen Black colleagues fight for 7+ years for diversity initiatives and we have finally gotten some notice at my firm. Nobody wants to be a minority until it’s beneficial to be one. And I peep the game and the change in behavior
