The thing that moved me about Rebecca Van Dyck, and how I could identify with her – is that media and account work at ad agencies such as Weiden and Kennedy, and Ogilvy leave very little room to stand firm on principles, or ideas such as social responsibility.
Even creative ideas are subject to carpet-bombing criticism. Rebecca did her stint in consumer marketing – certainly paid some dues – and excelled.
To pick up her cleats and “travel[s] to Zimbabwe and Rwanda with the board of global health organization PSI” might have been the goal all along. Facebook is lucky to have her aboard. And maybe so are we all.
