I’m doing a talk on diversity in advertising. Hit me up with your thoughts and benefits of having a diverse creative staff. Specific examples are a plus. I’d love to include examples (POC, LGBTQ, etc)

Experience with having a creative partner of the opposite sex? Yes, yes I know it’s 2018 and all that — I’ve just never been in the position and am curious. Any pitfalls to watch out for? Benefits? 🤷‍♂️

What are the benefits of starting at a small agency vs a large agency when you’re a junior? Is it worth having fewer creative people to work with?

Just looked thru my benefits paperwork and found salary info on two creative directors-one male, one female. They’re paid different salaries even though their experience is the same. I’m so pissed.

What’s the scoop on carrot creative? Recruiter trying to woo me . the $$ is low but he claims awesome benefits. Glassdoor reviews don’t sound to hot. 2nd opinion anyone?

Mama 🐟, how was your maternity leave? We're trying to conceive and I have all sorts of anxiety about being pregnant at work, feeling exhausted and not being able to keep up, my all male creative team being awkward about my belly, etc. there is not a single soul who looks pregnant at work and I'm excited about being a parent but terrified of the work implications.

Fellow creatives: we all have our "real" creative passions. If salaries and benefits weren't a factor, what brand-free art would you be making right now?

Me and my SO make $320k, we have a child with special needs and we live in expensive Boston suburb, because of the public school system. We’ve been renting 2BDR 1500 sq feet for the past 6 years, our current rent is $3100, and our lease expires in the end of June. Landlord wants to know if we plan to renew for the same price. We can potentially look into buying kinda fixer-upper, ask for lower price or move out into bigger house. Thoughts?

A ban on big business’ efforts to merge with or acquire distressed small businesses will help protect markets from corporate control, but alone it won’t be enough. Other necessary steps include bolstering the small business-oriented Paycheck Protection Program and freezing utility payments. And, of course, small businesses will still have the option of combining to survive this crisis—the merger moratorium would apply only to those giant businesses receiving money through a federal institution.
