NEW YORK ( -- Many people aren't satisfied with Madison Avenue's progress on the diversity front, but Patricia Gatling, head of the New York City Human Rights Commission, today said she is "cautiously optimistic" that ad agencies will ramp up the numbers of minority executives in their ranks.

Ms. Gatling was speaking at a public hearing at City Hall called by New York City Councilman and Civil Rights Committee Chairman Larry B. Seabrook.
As part of her testimony, Ms. Gatling reiterated statistics released this spring that found that five of the 16 ad agencies that signed on have not met all their minority-hiring goals in the first year of their diversity pact with the New York City Commission on Human Rights.
Those that failed to meet their self-created diversity goals have hired consultants to help them improve their numbers, Ms. Gatling said as part of her testimony.
Hiring up 25% Meanwhile, the other agencies that signed the agreement have all met or exceeded their goals, said Ms. Gatling. They are: Havas' Arnold and Euro RSCG; WPP Group's Grey Direct and Grey Interactive, Young & Rubicam and Ogilvy & Mather; and Interpublic Group of Cos.' Avrett Free Ginsberg, Gotham and DraftFCB (counted as two agencies because it was created out of the merger of Draft and FCB Worldwide). The average goal was 18% for minority hiring and the average result was 25%, Ms. Gatling said.

In another appointment of interest to the legal community, Mayor Bloomberg named Patricia Gatling, who held the number three position in the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office, as the head of the Human Rights Commission.

Ms. Gatling, the new head of the Human Rights Commission, also received strong praise yesterday from her former boss, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles J. Hynes.
Ms. Gatling began her legal career as an assistant district attorney in Brooklyn following her graduation from the University of Maryland School of Law in 1982.After three years, she joined the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor, and from there went on to prosecute police brutality and corruption cases with Mr. Hynes when he was appointed by former Governor Mario Cuomo as special prosecutor to investigate the New York City criminal justice system.
Ms. Gatling said she intends to apply the law enforcement techniques used in the Brooklyn office to the Human Rights Commission, which was recently criticized by the Association of the Bar of the City of New York for its lack of an aggressive approach.
The commission was "designed as a law enforcement agency and the Mayor wants it to be a law enforcement agency," she said.Specifically, she said she would adopt two of the recommendations of the City Bar report by setting up a system for the early assessment by senior staff of discrimination complaints to save the agency' resources for the most promising cases.
She also pledged to have senior staff quickly review the 4,000-case backlog, which has accumulated under the commission's first in/first reviewed system.Every effort will be made, she added, to focus the commission's resources on those cases that will "have the largest impact for the most citizens."
