Campaign podcast: A moment of reckoning for the ad industry on racial equality

Campaign’s Brittaney Kiefer, Gemma Charles and Maria Iu discuss the shifts in the ad industry since George Floyd’s murder in 2020.

But was anything really different about that moment for the industry? Brittaney, Gemma and Maria discuss the impact that has been felt in areas such as casting and on-screen representation, talent and equal pay. 

What change has occurred since Floyd’s murder and the resurgence of the BLM movement, and what needs to happen next?
