Lyndsay Cornelious, Digitas
Associate Director of Talent and Diversity
Lyndsay Cornelious (she/her/hers) is a passionate, determined, and intellectual leader focused on helping others succeed and grow in the best, most-efficient way possible. A proud Black woman and Detroiter living in Chicago, she strives to bring the fiery, resilient, and innovative spirits of her cities and her people into everything she does.
Lyndsay’s background as a project manager serves as the foundation for her strategic visioning and approach to problem solving. Always solutions-oriented, she brings her penchant for process, efficiency, and structure into all her work to help teams see both the bigger picture and the individual details. Currently, she serves as an Associate Director on the Talent Engagement & Inclusion team at Digitas, an advertising agency known for bringing together its deliberate diversity to make better connections and realize ambitious outcomes. Through this role, Lyndsay is striving to help amplify, uplift, and empower the voices of marginalized communities across Digitas, Publicis Groupe, and the wider advertising industry.
Lyndsay strongly believes that reimagining and redesigning our systems requires cultivating the unique power of the individual in sync with institutional change. She brings this to her role by working with her business resource groups, culture partners, and senior leaders to develop programming, trainings, and business practices that help shift perspectives and optimize operations. Most recently, she has helped lead powerful Brave Spaces – platforms used to encourage challenging and productive conversations on difficult topics – across the agency and the Groupe while also training others how to facilitate them. Through all this work, coupled with strategic planning and partnerships, she aims to continue the momentum of D&I efforts and make significant inroads to progress.
