Any particular segment of sales good for ex-finance? Currently 3 years in at fortune 100 bank on business development side (on commercial loan originations team but no commission/targets at the associate level, basically do credit analysis and build pitch books for the producers) This role has been great as I have gotten both analytical experience and tasted sales experience (I say taste bc I’m not the producer) but would potentially like to transition to a sales role that is less analytical

Was tasked with designing a campaign for Pride month even though I'm a straight male. I told my boss that I believe someone from our team who identifies as queer would be more appropriate for handling this campaign as I don't wanna feel like I'm intruding in something that doesn't represent me, but she said it is because I am a better designer. Should I take the campaign or double down on them giving it to someone else?
