Publicis Groupe has asked Saatchi & Saatchi Chairman Kevin Roberts to take a leave of absence following controversial remarks he made suggesting that the ad industry's gender diversity debate is over.
"It is for the gravity of these statements that Kevin Roberts has been asked to take a leave of absence from Publicis Groupe effective immediately," Publicis Chairman CEO Maurice Levy said in statement. "As a member of The Directoire, it will ultimately be the Publicis Groupe Supervisory Board's duty to further evaluate his standing. regarding gender diversity."
He added: "Promoting gender equality starts at the top and the Groupe will not tolerate anyone speaking for our organization who does not value the importance of inclusion. Publicis Groupe works very hard to champion diversity and will continue to insist that each agency's leadership be champions of both diversity and inclusion."
