Agency is doing a mentorship program. Want to participate as a mentee, and would love to be paired with a successful black woman for sure, but literally can't think of 1 black woman in management in the entire NY office. Sad.

Participate anyways! Don’t limit your possibilities just because there is nobody who looks like you — it’s unfortunate, of course. But you can and will still gain something from a mentor.


For sure!! I signed up with the same sentiment you mentioned. Thanks!

I’ve been working in a surgical subspecialty as a new grad PA for the past 4 months in FL. I make 95k but the work life balance is poor and I’m expected to work overtime every week (~5 hrs and often take work home too) AND take unpaid call for a month on a rotating schedule (every 2 months). The SP is a condescending nightmare. Should I start looking elsewhere now or get at least a year in? I am starting to feel burned out already.

Hi Everyone, need some advice. The only reason why I took my current role is because my direct supervisor would be a black woman VP- I was obviously excited because I've never worked with another black woman before. She's been out on maternity leave since September and I've had to cover her role and do my job, which is two levels above mine and supervising someone above my level. Yesterday the SVP tells me they found a new VP (ww) who would be my new boss.

Hi - first, white woman here. Please let me know if I am intruding! That said, a friend of mine is looking for CD CWs and she was really hoping to bring a woman of color into the role. It sounds like there aren’t even applicants. I racked my brain and while I know many who are in the art side, I don’t know a single writer. If you are interested, DM me your book! It’s a fantastic job. Also, I was wondering if there is a reason there seem to be less CD writer females of color vs art?
