What role could an ad school have in flowing more diverse talent into the industry?

The issue isn’t a lack of talent or even access to talent. The issue of diversity is a willingness to hire, retain and promote diverse talents. The portfolio schools are doing a much better job of educating diverse talent than the advertising agencies are doing of hiring and retaining them. The issue is agency leadership.

We agree! Which is why our program is only one year and half the price of the major ad schools. Our hope is to make the idea of ad school more attainable for all students.
