We are the industry’s largest startup – the oldest and newest advertising agency in Chicago. Founded in 1873 as Lord & Thomas and reintroduced as Foote, Cone and Belding, we create big transformative ideas that drive change. With over 700 employees, we have an entrepreneurial spirit, with scale and best-in-class capabilities all under one roof.

FCB is an agency with a long-standing commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I). As a creative agency who delivers a product seen by millions of people every day, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure that our work is inclusive at its core, and reflects the nuance and richness of today’s U.S. population, the group of people we refer to as the Diverse Mass.

Our DE&I efforts have been structured around 3 core pillars:

  • Our Workforce - Ensuring that our talent at every level of the organization is reflective of the diverse group of consumers we create work for every day.
  • Our Workplace - Ensuring that the environment in which we work and the culture that we create fosters a spirit of respect and inclusivity for all employees.
  • Our Work - Ensuring that the work we create and the process by which we create it is intentionally inclusive from start to finish
