Chelsea partner and Executive Producer Lisa Mehling took a moment this morning to reflect on the success of the work, "We are so proud of Lauren, and to have collaborated on such a powerful message that has impacted so many people. It's worth noting that many of the people behind this campaign are women: Susan Credle, Judy John, Adine Becker, AJ Hassan at Leo Burnett, Lauren Greenfield, my partner Allison Amon and myself. Incredible." Chelsea is proud to collaborate on such impactful content, which represents an underlying sea change on the role and meaning of advertising. Our congratulations to everyone who worked on this powerful project, man or woman; it was an incredible team.
