Editor’s Pick

“Editor’s Pick” for Thought Leadership

Patty Harrison
Editor-in-Chief AdChat DFW

This month’s pick is about diversity, a very relevant and often sensitive topic. It was written by Apollo Films‘, Jodi Lauren Miller. In this article, she not only shoots down the reasoning behind why the production and advertising industry falls short on hiring people of certain races and cultures, but shows how it’s in all of our interest to reverse this trend. Until recently, media content from magazines and newspapers, to TV and movies, have been largely influenced by white-male decision makers.  Many subjects that matter to other cultures have been lightly covered or completely excluded. What a shame to have these voices stifled. And the talent that could have been nurtured and developed, otherwise died on the vine. Please take the time to read Jodi’s article and think about how the decisions you make could cause a positive ripple effect in our communities. Let’s change the way we think a bit.
