The ad industry is unquestionably at a turning point, with the long-simmering pushback against widespread sexual harassment now at a full boil and women in the industry demanding better accountability from their employers and colleagues.

On this week’s episode of Adweek’s podcast, “Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad,” our panel looks at how the #MeToo movement is reshaping Madison Avenue, what we learned from the two-year legal battle around JWT’s global CEO, and how 11 of the industry’s trailblazing women helped pioneer a more inclusive landscape.

We also talk about the WWF’s interesting bait-and-switch influencer campaign, #TooLaterGram, and the recently revealed investigation into WPP chief Martin Sorrell.
