Thoughts on gender reveal parties?
Is W+K really the fairytale land of diversity in advertising or do they just do a good job of acting like it?
I'm a young female minority (black) on the Creative side. Curious to know how well you think your agency hires and promotes diversity?
#IWD have you ever felt like your gender was holding you down? (IMO: Don't. Go show them what you're worth it.)
I’ve been thinking about leaving my job for a couple of years, but one thing that always stopped me was this nagging feeling that I would be letting women down by not staying and making partner and improving the “ratio.” But I just got a job offer to be an executive at a company where I’ll be the *only* female leader, so I guess I’ll still be contributing to gender equality after all! 💪🏻 Very excited about this new opportunity! But also SUPER nervous!
How does the gender pay gap conversation go in an industry like consulting? What variables do we control for? Do we say, in a given company, females with title X should get paid the same as males....

I’ve been hanging with a coworker and their significant other a lot lately and I’m starting to get a crush on my coworker’s partner...and I think it might be mutual bc there’s a slight sensual tension whenever it’s just the two of us talking I left out gender on purpose just in case my coworker is on here lmao
Teaching in an inclusion coteaching model next year. Looking for tips and tricks to “share” the room.
You may be pleasantly surprised by people. I'm a proponent of visibility in the workplace. It may give strength to someone else that you don't realize may be struggling with coming out too. Plus, it's now a part of pop culture to be LGBT; and workplaces are leading the charge with diversity and inclusion initiatives. I leverage this aspect of myself in the workplace and upper management and partners frequently reach out to me to provide me with opportunities for higher visibility in the office strictly because of that aspect of myself.

Is it possible to counter and push past the band? I was offered a raise during my interview process so the original jump of 15% was decreased to 7% based on my new salary.
