    Terrific that the majors are celebrating Black History Month. It seems to me a more meaningful action item would be a real commitment to get people of color into the business. Recruitment presence on college campuses, internships where the interns are actually hired after after school, pipelines for hiring, real mentoring and support and some employees in senior management as aspirational role models. The cupboard has been bare as long as I have been in the business- which has been quite a while.

  2. “…a real commitment to get people of color into the business.” Right on point Tony Dailey. And as you and I have discussed, the cupboard is indeed bare and little effort to sincerely fill it. And it is across the board in the OOH Industry. But wait as I have been told many times, “why would I bring this up and write about it?” Thank you for your comments Tony.
