Beyond the Pledge is a limited podcast series, in partnership with R/GA and the 4A’s, that spotlights a variety of people with different perspectives on the current state of diversity, equity, and inclusion—and the work we still have left to do. Their tough and honest conversations will tear down myths and identify actionable ways in which we can hold brands and agencies accountable. Listeners will be equipped with the inspiration and knowledge needed to make critical, long-term and meaningful changes.
To kick off the series, R/GA's VP, Global Executive Director, Culture & Operation, Jai Tedeschi chats with The 4A’s EVP, Talent Equity Inclusion Simon Fenwick about the importance of prioritizing equity in the workplace. They discuss how the 4A’s and R/GA are creating more equitable workplaces, and identify some of the organizational and operational systems companies must adopt to achieve lasting racial equity.
