Justin Thomas-Copeland on Black History Month
For #BlackHistoryMonth, DDB North America CEO and President Justin Thomas-Copeland share his perspective on being a Black leader in adland with Campaign US.
To the current workplace environment, he hopes to see Black people being portrayed more as executives, teachers, engineers, innovators, architects, urban planners, economists — the list goes on and on. In many of these careers, Black people are still living the experience of being the only one. They need broader depictions of Black people.
“Be open to building with everyone — of all races, backgrounds, experiences, neuro and physical abilities, and sexual orientations. That is also what Black people do well.”
