You’ve seen it. That advertisement from the global clothing retailer.
Culturally insensitive views like this affects all of us in the long run, especially our children.
Here are some suggested solutions to break this pattern:
- Diverse representation on marketing teams
- Diverse representation within advertising agencies
- Hire people with different perspectives and backgrounds to call out nuances when groups are put in an unfair, stereotypical light
- Create imagery with a positive tone
DVRS Stock’s mission is to present people positively. Our hope is that our children can view people who look like them represented in the media in a positive, uplifting manner.
Let’s shed these stereotypes – one image at a time.
