So it’s been a month since we all started talking about diversity in the ad business more with some focus. Has anyone seen any real progress from their employer? (Policy, pro bono work, programs, hiring etc). Genuinely curious as my agency is treading water.
Hi ladies, looking for advice: My team is tiny and we're recruiting for someone below my level Myself and the only other junior (above me) both didn't decide to push one candidate forward as she was just eh (and personally, she no-showed once and was late) plus there were definitely better candidates However, my manager wanted to push her forward anyways (I believe for diversity/personal bias) Given my manager has a lot of influence in general, I'm stressed she's going to get the role (CONT)
I'm bored. Bored of white men acting like diversity in advertising is a humdrum trend that can be likened to bots and ar.
Also it’s been really hard to get new accts/pitching brands any advice would be appreciated. Looking to work with brands that support women, diversity, and social impact.
How much do adcoms really care about candidates who are first gen college students coming from poor URM backgrounds? I wrote about it in my essays because that experience impacted me heavily, but I guess I can't keep shake being skeptical because nobody gave a damn all of my life. I feel like they may care and it may have a material impact on admissions chances, but only insofar as they can check a diversity box. Am I just salty? I do have a chip on my shoulder I'd like to do something about
Is it just me or does Highdive only hire male copywriters/CDs? The diversity on their creative team is 1. Very whitewashed and 2. Extremely male dominant. Sad to see.
NYC vs Chicago - considering moving out of NYC (obvious reasons :-)), though we love the city and like diversity and energy for our kids to grow up (no suburbs). Any thoughts/experience on Chicago?
Do you feel that everyone is getting too sensitive these days. I just feel many people are reading too much into everything or over analyzing especially when it comes to gender diversity cont'd.
Is it just me or does anyone else find the Microsoft spot with Katie (who by all means deserves it) hypocritical, after the way the 49er’s really showed what they think of diversity w/ Kaepernick?
Anyone move from a large east coast city to a smaller city in the south or midwest? Did you have trouble adjusting to the slower pace, fewer things to do, and/or maybe a lack of diversity?
Is it normal to talk to your guy friends about intimate topics (how their parents met, gender roles, etc.) or do you think that suggests “more than friends”?
Lots of right wing hysteria about liberals trying to engineer equality of outcome to correct sexual/racial inequities (in higher ed, for example). I think we all want socioeconomic, gender and racial barriers to opportunities to be addressed, but no significant number of people really believe in equality of outcome right? This is just a straw man argument.
My partner, male, got a 10% raise. I, a female, got an 8% raise. What would be the reason besides the obvious gender pay gap?
Hey, I’ve just started a bowl on diversity in London specifically if anyone is interested - 9qo8f
Renting my 1bed/1bath apartment in lakeview east. Renewed my lease and have to move states. Its on broadway and diversity. Across the street from Marianos, lake is 2 blocks away.
Is there a way to find out the gender of the baby if I am still in my early 1st trimester? Like heart beat, my reaction to food, haha... an impatient mom...
I’d recommend reading this book along with the Kamasutra to learn about ancient India’s openness to sex, gender, and homosexuality. There are about 42 genders described in ancient scriptures and homosexuality was far from taboo.
Where is a new build???

I feel stuck, career-wise. 10 YoE, under $140k (highest comp I’ve ever had). Average technical skillset, average consulting skillset, poor politics player, great teamwork, great work ethics (bordering on workaholism). Maybe I need a life coach.
It seems morally wrong that consultants are paid more the PhD biochemists, physicists, engineers and social workers. Why is compensation so disconnected from actual value creation in our society?
Is Frontier or Spirit's FF program worth it? What airline programs are worth signing up for?
What is Barry’s?
NYC folks. Visiting for Memorial day and wanted some good reccos. Lived there a few years back but wondering if any new bars , restaurants or activities recommended. TIA
Why is US not sending army in Ukraine to help out? One reason they give us Ukraine is not part of NATO but Afghanistan was so not part of NATO still US went in! Just.
Like this post if you think Ivanka is gross
Best life lesson I learned from Deloitte: don’t ever, EVER sign a contract that demands you return the sign on bonus if you leave within a year. I thought to myself, “I would never leave a company within a year”, but I grossly underestimated how much I could hate a job.
If I come out to my team as Gay, will they treat me as a normal person anymore? 95% of me team are from outside of US which I’m not 100% sure of their religion & culture.
Yay or nay to shutdown again for 4 weeks? Full shutdown to bring this damn virus under control once and for all so we can start rebuilding immediately after.
