The third podcast can be heard below.  In a nutshell: The NYC Human Rights Commission issued a report on the lack of diversity within the advertising industry in 1978.   Fast forward nearly 30 years, and we have another report and a threat of fines and public embarrassment but, again, no real change.

Before I offer a solution, I share my perspective as an African-American and a marketer.  One correction: I mispronounce the name of Ogilvy Toronto’s Co-Chief Creative Officer.  Her correct name is Nancy Vonk.

    Your podcast on the “Race Frontier” was a real ear-opener. Thanks for the insight, and the courage to say some thing that all of us who are intellectually honest –no matter where we fall on the race-ideology spectrum–have had to think but rarely say out loud.
