14601: Entitled And Privileged Wendy Clark Hates Entitlement And Privilege.

During an episode of BBDO’s Love This podcast, DDB Global President and CEO Wendy Clark revealed she has an alter ego: Connie Client—a persona tied to her client-side background. Clark also declared, “I hate entitlement and I hate privilege.” She was referring, however, to work status and never being above doing anything for the job. That is, Clark’s hate was not directed at the social entitlement and White privilege that denies diversity in adland, despite her restless ambition to build an advertising agency that is “as diversely inclusive as the marketplace that we serve on behalf of our clients.” Connie is obviously tied to her con artist background too.
