Big BIC brava to BIC Board Member Singleton Beato who has been promoted to Global EVP, Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer at McCann Worldgroup. In this role, Beato will work to ensure that the agency network take an aggressive approach to driving forward their mission to promote systemic and structural change.

Beato joined McCann Worldgroup as Chief Diversity & Engagement Officer in 2017. Here, she was responsible for designing and leading strategic workforce diversity and engagement solutions that drive business performance and innovation across McCann Worldgroup (MW) agencies.

Before McCann, Beato led diversity and inclusion strategy for the American Association of Advertising Agencies and was the director of human resources for J. Walter Thompson (now Wunderman Thompson) prior to that. Among her accomplishments thus far at McCann, the agency credits her as “the visionary” behind its annual “Day For Meaning” event that is aimed at bringing “individual and collective accountability to disrupt and shift daily behaviors and decisions that have traditionally been barriers to inclusion."

Singleton has championed the BIC Program since its launch in 2013, seeding BIC's first professional development fund and connecting BIC Program Director Nancy R. Tag to her vast industry network, including the 4A's Diversity & Inclusion Board. Since then, Singleton has provided opportunities for the program and its students, including serving as a BIC Portfolio Thesis Judge.
