Omnicom Group released its inaugural diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) report this week that outlines the company’s key areas of focus for DE&I and lots of material and metrics on its approach to making progress in the area.
In 2021, the company reports that almost 40% of all new hires in the U.S. were Black, Indigenous, LatinX or Asian American. At the end of 2021, 20% of Omnicom’s executive or senior level managers in the U.S. were Black, Indigenous, LatinX or Asian American, a 25% increase since 2018.
And women now represent 49% of Executive or Senior Level Manager roles in the U.S.
In addition to companywide initiatives, the report highlights efforts by individual agencies and their contributions to DE&I goals in their local communities.
