The Forgotten List #3- 2022

Happy Days to all of the Gen B readers and supporters, Gen B would like to acknowledge that as a team we do appreciate all of your readership and support!

Day #3 Of Gen B Magazine to showcase talent throughout Media, Creative and Advertising.

We do not believe there can possible be any ‘List’ of talent that does not include communities such as Black, African American, LGBTQ+, disABILITY, 50+, Religion and many others and therefore we will be highlighting talent across many communities over the next 6 days. Media and Advertising is a fantastic industry that IS making strives to become more diverse and welcoming to everyone – We believe this should be highlighted at any opportunity by Community and INDUSTRY press.

We also do not call any collection of talent ‘Top’ talent as we believe this is ‘impossible’ to say – therefore these lists will highlight many but certainly not even scratch the surface… This is NOT an extensive list but we hope it gives a window into the many impressive people that make up our industry.

Here are a few more for the industry press to use – Your Welcome 😉
