If consumers prefer diversity in ads, wouldn't it make sense to have a more diverse industry? Why does agencies lack diversity?

Because we live in an institutionally racist culture that shuts minorities out of the most lucrative careers.






Because agencies would then have to be willing to deal with racist clients, off handed comments from coworkers , and the harsh truth that minorities do not see themselves actively represent within higher leadership. But you know we have progressed 😉


Some agencies are more diverse than others. And unfortunately it goes along with the type of clients they have and the industries they service (and where their offices are located)


Because we live in Trump's America


Reasons could be they would have to face and look at themselves and see no diversity dwells within. #comfortzoneworks #toomuchworktolearnaboutothercultures #especiallyminorities

Pretty sure no one grew up wanting to be in advertising. Everyone else just had better real life talents and aspirations.

Hiring based on "culture fit"
