Been working in the multicultural space for quite some time. I do love it, but there is a part of me that believes that I can make a bigger impact in a GM agency. We need some diversity. Thoughts?

Definitely. I’m a WOC and I also started out in Multicultural and moved into GM not long after because there needs to be more multicultural representation. Struggle is real every day but at least we’re in the room and have the chance to say something.

Go for it!

Absolutely!

Do it! Silos are a thing of the past. We need to change that mindset, and bring our experience to the table to shift how people think about multicultural.

Please do!

Where do you live? Need any advice on next steps?

Code for IBM bowl? I'm new here, thanks.

I’m job searching right now and applied for a job I was a little overqualified for just to shoot my shot and get my foot in the door with a great brand. The hiring mgr took the time to email me to tell me I was overqualified and offered to help me get connected to his network. He’s been so kind and helpful and I’m kind of in shock at his generosity. Even if an offer doesn’t come from it, is it weird if I send him a Starbucks gift card or something as a thank you? What’s appropriate?
