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?

I'm not perceived as meek in Asia but when i moved to NA my reviewer told me I am. He told me to be more confident & cited some coworkers (all white)Now im getting crappy jobs because of my 'meekness'

Hey everyone! I’m new to Fishbowl and curious if any folks in this thread are in the Boston area. It would be great to meet folks outside my agency 😃

On heels of BHM closing and WHM upon us, what heritage celebrations have y’all seen in your offices that have been ‘successful’—which is to say, feels genuine and is not pandering to the people?

Happy Monday, good people. Wanted to introduce myself—Nadia Jones, new Community Leader for this bowl! I hosted a D&I workshop here and am happy to connect! Black. Woman. Mom. Queer. Native NYer. 👋🏾

Had to speak up today during a creative review and call out a horribly racist idea. The team was receptive and the idea is dead now. But it was really hard to do when no one else in the room saw it.
