Minorities in Marketing

2423 members

Hello, did you guys notice that a post about Amy Cooper/feminist racism was taken down from the coronavirus thread. Seems like our peers get easily triggered when confronted by the truth. Have you thought about how that affects the badges we get on here? Have a hunch POC’s comments get taken down or are not “reacted” to as often as white people’s posts. I think the image below triggered non POCs on that thread. Thoughts? We can’t even speak our mind on this type of platform?

Anyone not come from an ad impressive school and feel like you don’t measure up? I’m 30 and feel behind in my career. Come from a small town, self taught and only ever worked in small no-name shops. How do I move up when competing with kids with great books right out of ad school? I’ve sent my resume to a few directors upon request and got crickets. I’m feeling like my experience isn’t enough.

Are you sick of tired of being sick and tired!!?? I know I am. Just like you the recent murders of two black men have done a number on me.... and I can’t just sit still with this. I wanna take action. I want to do something. Create something. Develops something that can create change. So what is the output? I’m not sure. And that’s why I am reaching out to you all. Let’s use our talent in advertising to make something that will sway people to “PULL UP”!!! Let’s chat!! The time is now!!!!

Anyone else tired of having to work so hard to get where you are, only to realize you will be the first one laid off because you aren’t in the “sorority.” Watching it happen is filling me with anxiety

Any other black women struggling with what to do with their hair during this quarantine? I put my hair in some sloppy braids two weeks ago and have been wearing headwraps during all my zoom calls.

Anyone else do this? When comping new work, I like to put POC as subjects as much as possible. And see the progression as the rounds of feedback somehow turn them white in many cases.

It’s hard sometimes being the only POC in the meeting or overall group. There are so many microagressions that are too small to say anything about. it’s an industry thing for sure. Tips on dealing?

Apologies for being obvious here, but do y’all notice the career trajectories of white people in advertising are like a rocket whereas minorities struggle to even get put on decent projects?
