I hope your agency doesn’t just hire one Black person to check a box for this. Honestly should probably direct the business elsewhere- the client will get better results and much more authentic work with a diverse/Black led team

They need to hire some Black people absolutely. Like a good percentage of the team, not one or two people. And the team should likely be headed up by a Black GAD.

It sounds like you need overall diversity, not to just hire a single black person to check a box. I am white and in the minority on my team. We have two women from South Korea, one from Argentina, a man from Ghana and myself. Our team discussions are so open and honest and I’ve learned so much from them. I hope you find some diversity as it’s truly enriching for your products, customers and personal growth. Best of luck to you!

Thank you for your replies. This situation has escalated and gotten so much worse.
