Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Can Advertising Walk the Talk
19 min

We’ve seen positive shifts in diversity, equity and inclusion in the marketing industry. But COVID-19 is proving to be the mother of all distractions, and while it’s easy to forget about the important issues when they’re out of our line of sight (while working from home) how can we promote the tangible benefits of diversity, equity and inclusion and accelerate this positive change.

Welcome to Rethink, a podcast by Think with Google. 

The idea of creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces is something people have been fighting for for years but it’s still taking time for companies to turn this into real, meaningful change.

In this episode, we're talking diversity, equity and inclusion, and how it positively impacts business. Especially when it’s clear that if people inside the four walls of your office are reflective of people outside it you get a better culture, better creative and ultimately, a better bottom line. 

Today’s challenge comes from creatives Jess and Grace who want to know how the advertising industry is making diversity a reality.

“A lot has been said about the need for diversity in advertising - both in the industry and the actual work. But what we wanna know is…what are we actually doing? How are we making it a more formal part of the creative process, so that agencies and clients not only include but amplify diverse voices?”

To help us answer this we chat with Tara McKenty, a Creative Director at Google and co-founder of RARE, a platform that drives diversion and inclusion in tech, media and creative industries.  Consultant Karen Ferry shares her experience and quotes diversity advocate, Verna Myers, to illustrate clearly the difference between diversity and inclusion. And Barb Humphries, Creative Director at The Monkeys tells the story behind the diverse casting decision for the Meat and Livestock Australia Company’s 2017 Spring Lamb ad. 

Diverse opinions, experiences and perspectives mean diverse ideas, and when ideas are your business that’s got to be a good thing.  So if you want to know more, check out this episode...

S2E20 "Ari Lewis - Starting a Newsletter in the Attention Economy"
Today, Ari Lewis joins the show to talk about why everyone should start a newsletter, actionable lessons from Disney and Barstool, and what he learned from hiring a writing coach. Ari helps companies and thought leaders earn attention without paying for it. He hosts the podcast, “The Attention Economy,” where he talks with entrepreneurs, executives, and industry leaders on how they capture the scarcest resource on earth. Links: 1. Ari's Twitter 2. Ari's Website 3. Brandon's Twitter 4. Brandon's Website 5 Key Takeaways  * I had around 1200 Twitter followers and I had zero people on the email list. So I just started to write, my goal was to write twice a week. As I began to grow, I realized there were like, all these advantages and to have you know, an audience. A lot of people they talk about, you know, build a product and go find an audience. And I'm really big on like, if you have an audience, you can sell them anything, you can figure out the product later. (Attention Merchants by Tim Wu)  * What I'm beginning to realize is like, yes, growth hacking works, but it only works to a certain extent, if you don't have good content, or if your content is not like serving a purpose, you're just not going to grow at the end of the day. And if you don't know how to growth hack, but you do have good quality content, you will grow in the long run.  * If you become like “The Everything Bundle", a great example, they're really turning into a traditional, “publication." They have like six or seven writers. Now they have multiple newsletters, multiple sections, they're doing events, they're doing podcasting. Well, how much money are you willing to give this up substack, how much does it cost is build out the same features internally and be able to personalize it.  * What barstool has done in a very similar way to Disney, is that they're not just good at creating content. They're good at monetizing their IP. * If you want to play college sports if you want to go to the pro level. you need many coaches, right? You need a fitness coach, you need a coach for the sport, you need maybe a wellness coach, you know, there's all these coachings you need? And well, what's the difference with running a business? If arguably running a business, there could be more money on the line, then, you know, playing a sport. So why wouldn't you have a writing coach? Why wouldn't you have you know, a psychological coach? Well, you have all these different coaches.

Why Sleep Is A Crucial Component Of Performance — Dr. Wendy Troxel | Flow Research Collective Radio
More than 35% of adults aren’t getting enough sleep (according to stats by the CDC.) This is a concerning stat. Sleep deprivation affects mental and physical health in many ways. So, in this episode, we talk about sleep science. We love talking about flow and peak performance but flow is actually more than a moment of peak experience. It is a cycle. The 4 steps of the flow cycle are struggle, release, flow, and recovery. And today, we want to focus on recovery and sleep and how to factor them in as crucial components of performance. We kick off this episode by talking about the most common misconceptions that people have about sleep. Our guest is great. Dr. Wendy Troxel is a Senior Behavioral and Social Scientist at RAND and Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. She is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in behavioral treatments for insomnia and other sleep disorders across the lifespan. Her research is funded by the National Heart Lung Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense. Troxel's research focuses on the interface between sleep, social environment, and health, as well as the implications for public policy. She is considered the leading authority on how sleep affects and is affected by close relationships. In this episode, you will learn why sleep is considered an overnight therapy and why you should not skip it. ABOUT THE EPISODE In this episode, you will learn about: * Misconceptions about sleep (0:27) * Sleep & memory consolidation (1:41) * Specific stages of sleep (3:15) * Sleep from an evolutionary perspective (6:29) * Norepinephrine & Sleep (9:37) * The importance of fundamental social connection(10:39) * Restoring quality sleep (12:17) * Reframing and visualization (15:46) * The content of dreams (17:06) * The positive things about sleep treatments (18:54) * Active recovery protocols (21:10) * Sleep & Cognition (22:23) * What to do to improve your sleep (24:09) * The first night effect (30:17) OUR FLOW TRAINING We are currently accepting new participants in our flagship flow training: Zero to Dangerous.
