"Work. When you employ someone, you permit them to work, or at least you suffer them to work. Suffer as in tolerate, like in the phrase, I don't suffer fools, which is just an awkward way of talking now, but what they meant is, if a company is nose works happening is in a position to know what's happening and it's benefiting them. They're responsible as an employer and that's I can't even think of a way for Congress to put it more broadly than a company that permits someone to work for it on its behalf. And Kate says, once she went back and actually read what lawmakers were thinking, how worried they were about companies looking for ways to get around the definition of employee, she thinks the definition is kind of genius because it is so broad. It acts like a blanket. It assumes a worker is an employee who deserves minimum wage. Unless the people who hired the worker can prove otherwise. But even as the minimum wage law was being written in this super Broadway, there were businesses and whole industries that were trying to get around paying minimum wage to their workers. One of the most glaring examples was something written directly into the minimum wage law. The exclusion of agricultural workers and domestic workers. Bill spriggs is an economics professor at Howard University. He's also the chief economist for the AFL CIO. And he says, the reason those two job categories, agricultural workers and domestic workers, like housekeepers and nannies, were originally excluded from the minimum wage law goes to

"Reality that differences exist. And then I think the second thing is leaning into opportunities to actually be part of the solution. I don't think you can lean into these opportunities to be part of the solution. If you fail to recognize that a problem exists. And so I think being thoughtful about the fact that you have a seat at this table and how can you bring other people to this team? Or how can you make sure that other people's voices are heard? How can you say if I'm a CMO of a company? Let me make sure that we have a multicultural research agency to make sure that we are capturing the voices of these black and brown consumers. And we were actually authentically communicating with them. Why don't I invest resources in training the future black and brown marketers so that when we put out an ad campaign, we can test it for social sensitivity within our own employees. And I think what you're seeing is so many companies have tried to do the same thing for years with their failing. I think of Gucci coming out with the blackface sweater. And I think H and M came out with something as well. Gucci came out with a blackface sweater. Yes, I think the sweater had a picture, someone who looked like they were dressed for a menstrual show or something like that. That seems like a terrible idea. Absolutely. And that's what my friends and I said. And we were like, clearly there was no black voice at the table because this would have been an easy call out. And there was all of this backlash on social media. I'm like, this is something for lack of better words that is not rocket science, but we do not have the right people at the table who understand cultural context or who have a unique live experience that is impacted by your decisions. There's no way through you to make decisions that resonate with them. And you will struggle and continue to struggle to maximize lifestyle value from these customers. And I think that it is lazy for companies to say there are qualified black and brown people out there because that has been proven wrong. You have to be very thoughtful in sourcing these black and brown people. You have to actually recruit from the institutions that serve them. And you have to be willing quite frankly to knock down your biases. I think also, you have to be open to the fact that you're bringing these people to the table because they're different from you. So when they have a different perspective from you, lean into an embrace it don't challenge it just because it's not your perspective. Based on your lived experience. You know, for these conversations can be really difficult. What I appreciate the most about you having this conversation is how you've been able to help me feel more comfortable in talking about this and that recognizing some of the institutional biases that are there is the beginning of the solution. And then it comes down to taking actions at the end of the day you need diverse seats at the table when you're making your decisions. The fuel, you can have a seat at my table anytime.

"Who is the founder of pre visible. Jordan asked, what marketing channels do you see as areas for growth that won't be disrupted by COVID in 2021? Okay, here's John's answer. I think a great untapped area for growth is good old networking. Now, a lot of people get networking wrong because they think that they're going to network with folks to find customers. Find clients. But networking is really all about meeting with folks who can introduce you to customers prospects and clients. Now, you don't have to just think Chamber of Commerce networking. Networking is all about finding people who have your ideal customer in mind who maybe have them as their customers and figuring out a way to offer great value to that person. Maybe you provide a service for them or maybe you provide content for them or maybe you actually agree to do say a webinar for their audience. You can do this over and over and over again and in many cases get introduced to literally thousands of prospects by good old networking with content by adding value. Thanks, John.

I thought welcome to the martech podcast. Then I'm so excited to be here. Thank you so much for inviting me to chat with you about why marketers need to listen to black voices. I'm excited to have you as my guest. I'm also excited to be chatting in front of the inbound 2021 conference crowd. We're trying to do something that's a little unique and incorporating some audio into the conference experience and not only is this to me an interesting topic, but an interesting format for us to live some marketing message and materials. So are you ready to do something new and exciting for the inbound crowd? Yes, I am and how low to all of the 2021 inbounding. What's up in batteries we're excited to chat with you. So look, we've got a lot to cover in terms of marketers, diversity, why black voices need more attention, but I want to start off talking a little bit about you, who and what you teach at Howard University talk to me a little bit about the marketing program and what you're up to at work these days. So like you said, I am the department chair. I've been in this role for two years before that. I was an assistant professor before that I was a PhD student at University of Pittsburgh. And I came to Howard because I realized that I had an opportunity to shape and mold the brightest minds in the world and have a positive influence from their lives in that way. So I'm so excited to be here. We're doing a lot of innovative things specifically around hands on experiential learning. So for instance, we participate in a university wide program between Amazon Studios and Howard University where our students get to go out to LA for semester. They get to gain hands on experience and knowledge related to the entertainment industry and they also get to intern within the department. We're also partnering with companies like Steve Madden to enhance our retail curriculum. Our students are actually going to be able to host a pop up shop, sponsored by Steve Madden. We're also launching a sales fellowship in conjunction with Vanguard. And we're doing all these other really exciting things to make sure that our students are as competitive as possible in the marketplace. I love the idea of experiential learning because one of the things that helped me become a better marketer was actually working on marketing. And I already had a career in marketing, but I had to basically leave my job and start learning how to do things myself to become a more effective marketer. Sometimes you can't learn everything in a book, you have to get out there in the real world and learn how you want to become a marketer. One thing that I noticed you didn't mention as you were describing what you were doing and who you were working with, you said the brightest minds in the world, but Howard is a historically black college. So there is a subset or a segment of the population who you are specifically focused on black students, primarily. Talk to me about how that makes teaching marketing different focusing on a specific segment of the population as opposed to a more sort of universal and diverse population. So a fear things, yes, I set the brightest minds in the world and I want to stick to that. I didn't disagree with you for the record. But I just want to clarify for the audience. I'm not saying the brightest black minds in the world, but I'm saying the brightest minds in the world. I truly believe that our students can compete with any of the students across the world and I feel like some of the world's greatest innovations are housed in our students minds. But going back to your question, I still am amazed when I sit down and I watch TV and I see how whitewashed advertising is. And I sometimes will sit there and count the number of advertisements that I see that just have white people or white passing people. And I'm like, how do these companies expect to build relationships with people outside of these communities when they don't show them in their advertisements? And that's just one example of I think the challenges that we as marketers are facing. And even if you look at something like advertisements for eye drops, you'll see that most often, people with green and blue and hazel eyes are featured, but they are actually a disproportionately small percentage of our population. So I sailed that to say, I think that we as marketers have to do a better job as it relates to inclusivity and actually making this inclusivity authentic and from my standpoint as a professor, I have to communicate to students why their voices need to be heard. How through the skills that we are giving them and their lived experiences they can enhance delivery of marketing assets, the stories that marketers tell and ultimately positively.

New York City Public School Seniors Say The Pandemic Is Shaking Up And Slowing Down The College Application Process
"Carlson. New York City public school seniors are now in their second semester, and that's historically a time to take a breath after completing college applications, But some students are still scrambling to submit essays and complete financial aid documents. W. My CI's Jessica Gould reports. That's only one of the ways the pandemic has shaken up the college process this year. Just a few days ago, Joshua Sr was sitting in front of his computer sending in his last college application to Howard University. I can't believe it a school y'all and This my final application. Wow. Yes, Josh goes to Brooklyn Tech, and he's a superstar. He's an a student with high test scores. He loves biology and Mandarin. He always planned to apply to college and the Corona virus didn't change that. But it did make it much harder. There were no campus visits or college fairs. He couldn't pop by his counselor's office to brainstorm. It's very much me in front of my computer like 12 A.m.. The night are in the early morning hours. This like China, think of things and there was no one to look over his shoulder while he filled out financial aid forms. I was so scared. I was gonna mess up Maybe one figure and You like label of fraud or something. But he says the biggest challenge has been juggling all his new responsibilities at home. Josh lives with his father and sisters in bed Stuy. His dad is a property manager who has been working around the clock since March. So Josh takes care of his 98 year old grandmother a week. My grandma every morning, I'll put her on the heart of party that's next to her bed also helps one of his sisters who has autism with remote learnings. I've had to kind of fill in as a teacher kind of helping her out with some of her homework, he says. For awhile, college applications just had to take a back seat to his other obligations. And experts say that's been a common theme this year. Angelique Figueroa is a counselor with a college bound initiative, a process that would have ended completely in December is now being pushed into January and February, she says. Part of the challenge has to do with applying remotely. She thinks the main reason is because students are under so much pressure, and some of their parents have lost their jobs. So now they have to work and they have to be able to provide And, um, I'm sorry I'm getting emotional, but I think that that is why it's taking them so long because they have to now. Not only be a senior Graduate from high school and be the first in their family. But now they have toe provide financially for their families. Like everything else with the pandemic. The impact on college applications depends on where you sit on the economic spectrum. With no s A T or a CT this year, applications over all appear to be up. But applications by students from low income families, students like Josh, who qualify for few waivers are down. Eric Waldo is with the common APP, which allows students to apply to hundreds of colleges at once, certainly a decrease in applications from first generation and low income students. And that's been probably the most troubling takeaway. He says. It's not surprising given how much families are struggling with finances and with loss. He says. Covert. 19 has also underscored how important it is to go to college. Having a college degree is actually was protected people and giving them the ability to stay home it all from the pandemic. It's been a life or death issue, so to be is that much more important that we you let this be a really a clarion call to all of us to do more to make sure students are applying to school and that they're actually showing up and going to college. That message isn't lost on Josh Sr. It's really just a question of where he'll be going next year. He's still waiting for responses, but he's already gotten a few, including this one from SUNY Binghamton accepted Yeah. First college acceptance ever he hopes many more of these are on the way. Thank you. Lord Jessica Gould w N.
