Does anyone have any useful articles, tweets, insta posts that I could send people when they say “if I can’t say that then what CAN I say, everything is offensive.” I’m tired.

I could sugarcoat this but why: What’s the whitest agency? Or which agency is the LEAST diverse?

The Brits are done talking about the lack of diversity in the entertainment industry ... they’re doing something about it!

When agencies post pics of their white staff, and boasts that they’re all about diversity, I call BS. A diverse house doesn’t mean the IT person or the receptionist- unless they’re also creatives!:)

Does anyone have experience confronting workplace inequality? Any lawyer recommendations? Things to say/not say? I don’t trust HR and I don’t know what to do.

I’m sad that instead of showing that there are no differences between human beings, we are advocating for races (what I understand it is very necessary). Just afraid that will create more division.

I know most of the questions here will be on sexism or inclusion of POC but can we talk about ageism? Once we reach a certain age should we just leave the agency business? Is that fair?

Why is this so true and so known? Agencies are only giving lip service to this, but not taking real action. So what advice do you have for people struggling with this day in and day out?
