-With Britain’s infamous Wimbledon tennis championship canceled for 2020 thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the Lawn Tennis Association, the sport’s governing body in the U.K. is—like a white, male CEO—fighting to stay relevant.

-Ogilvy makes a considerable diversity statement by … oh, wait. Never mind. The agency hired Deloitte Digital’s Andy Main as its new global CEO.

Colin Kaepernick will have an exhibit at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.


-SCAD wrapped up the year with its annual Scaddy student awards. There’s some good work there, folks.

-Ben & Jerry’s drive to crush white supremacy is “not a marketing exercise.”
