5466: Adweek Continues Diversity-Free Streak. published Lowe CCO Mark Wnek’s mindless musings on the recent 4As Leadership Conference. True to form, there were zero mentions of the new diversity initiative from the 4As and Howard University. Technically, Lowe is not among the agencies that signed a pact with New York City’s Commission on Human Rights, so perhaps Wnek is representing his company’s ignorance on the issue too (it should also be noted that Lowe is a former employer of 4As President-CEO Nancy Hill). The story was titled, “There Are No Rock Stars Here.” There probably were no minorities too.
