Four NYC Advertising Executives

How does your industry best promote diversity and inclusion?

Sallie Mars • Senior Vice President/ Chief Diversity Officer, McCann Worldgroup
“Supporting diversity and inclusion in our industry starts with hiring, but it doesn’t end there. The relationships our employees build with senior leaders are critical to their professional development and equally important to our ability to deliver innovative solutions for clients. The extra effort is worth the results.”

Sandra Sims-Williams • Chief Diversity Officer, United States, Publicis Groupe
“Diversity and inclusion matters to our industry, and more important, to our talent. The diversity of talent in our agencies create meaningful results for our clients. Having a mosaic of talent 
delivers messages that are appreciated and understood globally. Vive la difference!”

Tiffany R. Warren • Senior Vice President/Chief Diversity Officer, Omnicom Group
“Omnicom seeks to attract and retain the best talent from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our efforts will include actively collaborating with organizations and institutions to identify talent that will offer the best service to our clients and our company.”

Singleton Beato • Executive Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion Strategy and Talent Development, American Association 
of Advertising Agencies
“Our industry promotes diverstiy and inclusion by keeping the dialogue front and center. Many champions of diversity in our agencies publicly support initiatives that cultivate a pipeline of diverse talent to build the advertising workforce of the future. The industry also promotes diversity and inclusion by heralding the accomplishments of diverse professionals within our agencies through industry awards ceremonies and social media platforms. This is work that requires full community engagement. Failure is not an option!”
