My second job prospect in 6 months that fizzled bc they’re suddenly looking for women only. I’m all for more diversity and inclusion in adland, but isn’t that also gender discrimination and illegal?
Minority friends (e.g. Ethnicity, gender, sexuality,etc) Any microaggressions you experience weekly?
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
Thoughts on showing (I) cleavage and (II) shoulders at work? For ladies although everyone please weigh in. On that note isn’t it curious how different the standards are based on one’s gender identity?
Does anyone have book recommendations on gender bias/microagressions? For context: got into an argument with my dad bc he is moving and he said he doesn’t know about the mattress sizes “because that’s something a female who is into design and decoration would know” 🥴🤮 smh idk wtf a mattress has to do with design/decoration or women and this man needs education. thanks in advance
Hello Everyone, I am looking to hire a couple of technical sources who have a keen interest in diversity. I am building out a diversity sourcing team to support AWS AI/ML practice. Great opportunity with lots of visibility. Let me know if you are interested in learning more.
Leadership said racial diversity is not a priority for the company compared to gender diversity. What are your thoughts? (My thoughts in comment)
Looking for some advice. As a member of LGBTQ, is it better to work for smaller or larger firms? In terms of Overall equality, culture, support & embracing diversity. Also specifically at banking/PE/VC funds in NYC. Appreciate your thoughts and experiences.
Ladies, how would you have responded? I was hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend when he suddenly goes “Now that all companies practice gender equality what is the need for women specific conventions like Grace Hopper. What if there were male specific conventions/conferences like that? How would that make you feel? “ I was very drunk and not proud of how I responded. I basically told him off and recounted all the instances where I have been at a disadvantage because of my gender.
So here’s that NYT article about the lack of diversity at Adidas... which is also true about their agencies. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/19/business/adidas-diversity-employees.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share
What does gender fluid really mean?
Ladies, does it ever bother you when some partner/leader is mentioned (no gender specified) and people assume said leader is a “him”? Since I’ve picked up on it, it’s bothered me more & more!
We have a team to promote diversity in our department...everyone on the team is straight and white. This really blows my mind.
How racially diverse is your agency? Has racial diversity and inclusion improved or worsened since the pandemic started?
Do you all put your race and gender on job applications, or omit that info? In this day and age I don’t know if it hurts, helps, or doesn’t matter.
Heard my N+1 referring to me and other Arab coworkers "sand n******" behind our back, right after sermoning our team about inclusion and diversity 🤦🏻♂️
Thoughts on the show Blackish? Diversity, Culture, agency life all covered. Would you say an honest reflection?
What stage of being black at work are you? (When viewed by others). Physical threat? Suspicious? Diversity hire? Aggressive? Uppity? Accepted?

How much money do you have left over after you pay all of your expenses and tax? After taxes and rent, healthcare, 401k, and food, I have about 12-14k left over at the end of the year. Is this low? Should I be saving more?
I need to get a pulse check on my sanity... i live in Michigan, and sports gambling has become legal in the past year. Now every other commercial is about sports gambling, sports announcers are making in game advertisements, I get hit with social media ads, so on and so forth. I’m not against sports gambling, but the constant promotion seems like “corporate America” is taking advantage of addictive human tendencies, and contributing to the perpetuation of wealth inequality in America.. am I nuts

I was told in an interview for a national civil lit defense firm in nola that 90-100k is way too high for someone with 1.5yr of experience. Said that’s commensurate with 5 years. What should I be asking for? I’m coming over from the public sector and I’m clueless and confused from what I’ve seen, but I like this firm. I have 1.5 years of criminal experience.
Any tips going from a structured culture to a very unstructured company? Feeling very overwhelmed managing this change
I’ve gotten emails lately talking about how we are hiring at Accenture and asking us to tap into our networks, so figured I’d post on here. Needs being called out can be seen in the picture. I can’t promise I’ll respond to everything but if anyone wants a referral feel free to reach out. Also, I work in healthcare and I’ve gotten separate emails from leadership about how we need to hire more people there too.
Horrible headshots coping mechanisms - lay it on me. The firm decided to schedule new headshots at the worst possible time (WFH 15 I’m struggling to get off, none of my suits fit, my hair girl accidentally took my blonde too dark). Proofs came back and they are godawful - the photographer put me in the most awkward positions, so I look uncomfortable AND like an overstuffed sausage. I want to asinine for reshoots but I’m worried he’s going to make the exact same errors.
After getting promoted in Feb 2020 (lol fml) I designed and implemented a significant piece of data infrastructure that is beyond what’s expected of someone at my level. In 2021, I was not recognized for this accomplishment and a guy who knows nothing about the technology was promoted over me. It’s been a year since his promotion & the wheels are starting to come off: others are becoming increasingly aware of his ineptitude. What’s the best way to subtly pour gasoline on this fire?
I’m pregnant with my first. Super early- 5 weeks. Lots of time for things to go wrong. I’m also a step mom to two toddlers (we had them for a few weeks and now they’re at their moms until after Xmas) , and full time job. I’m EXHAUSTED. I have never known tired like this. Any tips and tricks on how to stay awake and focus at work? I’ve limited my caffeine intake (down to 1/2 cup a day or decaf only) and literally feel like I am a narcoleptic goat.
