In a special Black History Month-themed episode of Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad, senior editor Nicole Ortiz hosted and spoke with five industry executives on op-eds they’ve written for us in the past around Black History Month and how we can further the diversity conversation.

We were joined by Quiet Storm founder Trevor Robinson to talk about an article he wrote for us last year—one of the most popular Voice articles we’ve ever published!—looking at a rundown of racism in the advertising industry; marketer and author Frederick Joseph, who had also written an article for us in one of last year’s February print issues on how to make diversity efforts more inclusive; associate professor Monique Bell, who wrote about how diversity needs to begin in the classroom for marketers; and Adrianne C. Smith, the first global director of inclusion and diversity, and Judy Jackson, the first global head of culture, both at WPP on an upcoming print piece they wrote about how to deliver authentic work for black consumers.
