13672: Cannes 43.5% Conference.

Advertising Age reported women will comprise 43.5% of the judges at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, a figure that has doubled over the past five years. DDB Worldwide North America President and CEO Wendy Clark was tapped to chair Glass Lions—an honor she undoubtedly earned by producing Mickey D’s campaigns that deserve an Ass Lion. No word on the number of racial and ethnic minorities among the judges. Hell, Fearless Girl has a better chance of being named a judge than any person of color.

I guess minorities/people of color just have to get in line behind all the white women once they get to their 50% parity in everything.

Almost there with Cannes judges, I guess.

Maybe a few years from now will finally be time to talk about racial diversity?
