Any advice on how to actually FIND a mentor? I’m a first-gen black girl trying to navigate this whole ~career~ thing by myself. I would love to meet someone that’s actually done this before to help 😩

Ever notice how it’s usually a white person talking abt how diversity goes beyond what’s visible? How abt we try for visible diversity first & then we try to find diffs in similar-looking ppl’s bios 🤷🏾‍♀️

Why is it, when talking about how to make changes in the industry to help minorities, the fallback position is always how to help women instead (especially benefiting white women)?

Does anyone have a diversity and inclusion committee at their agency or company? If so do you find it to be useful? What are things that you would change?

Do y’all ever have white co workers that like to weirdly pronounce your name? Like phonetically emphasize it to make it funny? How do you tell them to stop?

The real agency salaries doc: white women with less experience making more money and I’m struggling with getting hired. As POC, how do you keep going without getting bitter? Heavy heart today

A recruiter friend of mine at a well known creative agency is looking for a freelance bilingual (Spanish) social strategist in NYC. Anyone interested or know of someone who is interested?
