Hate to say it, but I feel like these roles are being filled left and right for “show.” “Look we just hired this black person to help us with diversity.” They need to start filling roles at the executive level by people of color and make it just as important as it is for them to fill these roles with women. How many times have you seen a LinkedIn post “...hires first female CEO....hires first female __”? I’ve been in advertising at the creative level for almost 20 years now and have only met one black ECD in my entire career

Starting full time at McKinsey in November. Curious to know what it’s like for fellow gender non-conforming folk, as well as non-binary and trans folks at the firm (or as consultants in general!) Are there any trans/non binary people at your firm/office location, regardless of your firm? Just trying to gauge what kind of world I’m stepping into.

Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend

I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires.
