This new tool will help brands make advertising more inclusive

While more commercials are depicting a broader scope of gender identity, race, and sexual orientation, diversity behind the scenes is still lacking.

This new tool will help brands make advertising more inclusive

In 2017, Pepsi infamously thought it’d be a great idea to use Kendall Jenner to show the power a can of soda can have against police brutality. Just last month, Ancestry thought it’d be nice to use a sugar-coated depiction of a relationship between a white man and a black woman during slavery to sell its services.
