We all know that diversity can make an agency more effective and more profitable. Implementing it though can be a slow process that takes a toll on existing staff and new hires alike. But what happens when diversity comes from the top down? When leadership represents many points of view?
When the Dailey team bought itself back from its holding company of 30+ years, they knew the new managing partners would be a more diverse group than most. What they didn’t grasp is how quickly their leadership could affect the deeply-rooted culture of an agency founded half a century before. From the nuts-and-bolts of pay equity audits to socially conscious creative projects, join Dailey’s leadership for a discussion about how diverse leadership can create a space in which all kinds of people thrive.
