It has been another week of big developments: the ad industry is rethinking its icons and jargon, the Supreme Court has ruled against workplace discrimination, and tech companies like Twitter, Spotify, Adzerk, and more have joined in adding Juneteenth (Freedom Day) to their annual holiday calendars.

These changes, and the latest news stories, are the inspiration for this week’s theme: cultural shifts.

While recovery during the pandemic will be slow, many of the societal changes we’re experiencing are long overdue but progressing rapidly. All require quick-but-careful pivots in ad industry practices as publishers and advertisers are urged to build something better that puts all users first — and fast. We’ll share the key takeaways, tips, and topics we’ve been discussing.
