Oh boy! The AAF presents another clichéd solution to address the excessive exclusivity in the advertising industry—AdCamp! Kids can roast marshmallows while learning about a field that has steadfastly refused to embrace diversity for over 60 years! Or sit around the campfire telling scary stories of outdated hiring practices and blatant discrimination!
Of course, no one ever considers sending the adults to boot camp for cultural competence training. It’s so much easier—and philanthropic—to hug an underserved child.
