To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, this week we are opening a conversation between Grey employees about mistakes and misconceptions people make about the Latinx and Hispanic community. We are examining the larger issues of the single-story and the stereotypical narratives in advertising.

Beth Rolfs hosts the conversation with Karol Chang (Strategy Director and podcast contributor, Grey NY), and Rodrigo Jatene (Chief Creative Officer, Grey West)
