Adweek's DEI Podcast: Glenn Singleton

Glenn Singleton Featured on Adweek’s Podcast on Diversity, Inclusion, Equality and Equity

By Adweek Staff—April 16, 2020

Adweek continued to establish our commitment to diversity, inclusion, equality and equity earlier this year with the hiring of Mary Emily O’Hara, our first reporter dedicated to the topic. Over the past several months, we have published stories that delve into both the challenges and opportunities the brand marketing ecosystem faces in bringing a more diverse staff to the table.

To that end, Adweek is proud to launch a new podcast on the topic. D&I TBD is an audio magazine that combines storytelling and practical advice. Its main goal is to create an extensive library of insight for the industry’s future, as well as to create actionable opportunities for growth. Hosted by Adweek’s editorial staff and other contributors, D&I TBD allows us to get more comfortable with being uncomfortable.

In the first episode, Glenn Singleton, president and founder of Pacific Educational Group and Courageous Conversation, discusses his early experiences in becoming a leader in the space, the importance of authenticity to creating inclusivity, and the persistent issues of systemic racism that holds the industry back.

Additionally, Singleton, an Adweek Champions honoree in 2020, offers tangible “musts” in understanding the opportunities in diversity, inclusion, equality and equity, including a look into the Courageous Conversations books that he published in 2012 and 2014.
