￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
Curious how other people’s brains work. When you get an activation brief, what’s your process for coming up with a solid idea? Look for cultural moments that you can adapt? Look through award show books? Scroll YouTube videos until 3am? I know that every brief and every idea is different, but I’m more interested in the process and what you’re creative routine is to get the wheels turning. Thanks.
So, I'm really curious, for those of us who aren't essential workers, how are you handling return to work? Phases? 50% capacity? Self Identifying disclosures? Sanitization stations?

New Hires/College grads who were laid off from IBM GBS in Spring 2018. Where are you today? And how do you feel about IBM now? For context, back then, IBM overhired a significant amount of young professionals and let go a sizable chunk of them. They also almost postponed start dates for the class of 2018 by a year. As a result, IBM has been blacklisted by many universities from OCR.

My parents are coming to visit for the first time since baby was born. We also have a toddler at home. Baby is 1 month old. They’ve each had the first vaccine a few days ago, so not fully vaccinated. They go to work which involves lots of strangers. Them to get tested before coming he said they will be with us for a full week. They are not, because face say that Hass should be reserved for those with symptoms. And the free tests are only for those with symptoms. This is so stressful and I feel so caught between my parents and my husband.￼
There’s nothing I want more than to quit today, take a break and then go freelance but I’m so scared. Rent, no steady plan for prospective clients, health insurance... so terrifying. (Contd)
