13682: Exclusive Explicit Event.

AgencySpy posted on the “Implicit Bias Workshop” being held at Venables Bell & Partners, where attendance for the event is mandatory. The mandate is likely rooted in the fact that the White advertising agency hired an outside consultant to run the workshop, making it a pricey experiment if no one shows up. Sorry, but does “Implicit Bias” really apply to an industry where discriminatory exclusivity has been publicly recognized for over 60 years? At some point, the label should change to “Explicit Bias” for honesty and accuracy. The hack editors at AgencySpy called the affair an “Implicit Bias Workshop Party”—and considering the lack of diversity among VB&P’s leadership, is it much different than the infamous Campbell Ewald Ghetto Days party?
