Not surprised. I think it will be another five years before there's significant movement on c suites. They have spent forty years weeding minorities out by not paying them well, and not promoting them. I will give small (very small kudos) to groupm who hired Kirk McDonald (Black man), Alex Newman (Black Man), promoted a woman to lead mindshare as CEO and have an Asian woman as CEO of Wavemaker

I'm sure these people are all great and deserving and will do splendidly at their jobs. My issue is with these constant promises from the hold co's of doing better, recognition that they aren't doing better, talk about how they're hiring entry level staffers of color like gangbusters, talk about how disproportionatly white their leadership teams are and then here we go again with another round of promos. Publicis didn't even TRY. BIPOC leadership doesn't exist because we aren't trying to make them into leaders but they won't ever be leaders because they don't exist.... and on and on. Until when??? The end of time? Cool sounds good...

They are 100% deserving of those roles…the bench strength at Publicis is great. So what since they are “white” that should disqualify them for a role they have earned?

You’ve obviously havent worked with any of them or you would know why they’re in those roles. Plus only 8% of ceo roles are held by women so there is that.
