Accenture requested photos from staff to feature on loading pages. It’s been dragged a bit. Almost half the people have freckles (not diversity). On one screen, the only white guy photo is an MD…with his partner and kid so it’s clear what part of I&D he represents. On the other, the white guy is clearly blind. The white woman has pink cropped hair. Diversity doesn’t have to be 100% stereotypes.

I am frustrated as a Gay Woman who has given her all for 30+ years grinding to be the best. I have been in closet, out of closet, in-between and am tired of it. I want to be VALUED as a human being. I have gone from Rock Star to problem when people "found out". I have trained and promoted hundreds of people and been passed over for promotions because of not being a man. I have trained men with less experience, worse results only for them to move forward. If Diversity is important...prove it!

Any Jewish folks here? Need help addressing a Bat Mitzvah card. The invite says “Sarah is called to the Torah as a b’nei mitzvah”. According to Google, b’nei is the plural term for boys and girls. Want to avoid assigning gender to someone I don’t know and just saying Bat (vs Bar for men). What do I say in the card… congratulations as you celebrate your Bat Mitzvah? Bnei Mitzvah? Thanks!

Thank you Nadia for your insights. I’m frustrated gaps still exist in the industry; and the diversity & inclusion needle hasn’t move much since Al Sharpton protested on Madison Ave in the 90’s

Beyond gender diversity initiatives, what are some ethnic diversity programmes (other than ones for students, interns and junior trainees, or awards shows) in the US ad industry that inspire you?

I have a bit of a dilemma and need some advice. My manager pushes really hard to recruit and hire only minority candidates. While I'm all for diversity, it feels unethical to exclude other qualified candidates just because they are a particular race and gender (white males). I've had to pass over a few candidates that were WAY more qualified and in my opinion would have made a much better fit. I don't know if there's anything I can or should do.

Do you ever feel like you were a "diversity hire"? Have you ever thought your coworkers thought of you as such? This is an insecurity I battle all the time.

What do you think: Teachers should/should not discuss their opinions and ideas around sexuality, gender, and religion with students.

Some companies are not taking diversity beyond cosmetics and do not seem to be committed to equity and inclusion. Exhibit A: The credentials of some of the recently hired DEI “executives”. Exhibit B: Average tenure of said executives tend to be about 12 months. And parting tends not to be amicable.

Individual Contributor or Manager of 4? I have about 6 yrs of exp and have managing a team of 4 for about a year.

I’ve been looking at another opp which is about 20% more comp but is an individual contributor. Is being a manager all it’s cracked up to be? Should I even consider since I’m early in my career?
