I’ve noticed when applying for jobs online they ask about your gender, race, disability and veteran status. Is being one or more make you a more desirable candidate for a quota?

Anyone here ever witness someone make a full career transition into being a DEI consultant, strategist, Manager or Chief Diversity Officer? If not witnessed anyone, maybe done it yourself? I want to fully transition into the DEI space but don’t know where to start… any advice on certificates or career pathways would help!

I am fed up of my male cw partner who'd only write scripts involving male characters even though I am constantly telling him that we need to be mindful of diversity and inclusion. What should I do??

If you were offered a role at a company where there was little to no diversity within the group you were interviewing for (not even at the level you were interviewing for, or at senior leadership level) would this be a red flag for you in terms of culture, & potential opportunities? I want to keep an open mind but this company has been around for 20 years. The people I interviewed with were great but im concerned that there’s a larger problem at play. Thoughts?

What do you wish design students would learn in school to ease the transition into needs of business? I have seen an increasing need for more education/inclusion/overlap into other areas of business that depend on design teams so they understand what goes into the process. As well as design teams into the other business teams. This would alleviate tensions and improve quality product delivery due to the major miscommunications that occur so frequently.

Hi all, I’m one of the two BIPOC at an ad agency and I’m one of the first WOC ever hired at the agency. We’ve recently started to have diversity and inclusion trainings, and some of those trainings have been emotionally draining for me. Wondering if somebody has ever been in a similar situation and how you’ve mentally prepared for it?

Help! I’m hiring, and it’s down to 2 candidates. One is not as qualified, would require a lot of training, a great fit culturally and brings diversity to the agency. The other is more qualified, still a great fit culturally and wouldn’t require as much training, they were more prepared and I could put them in front of the client tomorrow, but they are non-BIPOC. Both are in the same range salary wise, and my team is SUPER small. Both are great fits, and I am torn. Advice? Please?

What should I be reading or researching? First gen lawyer here, always been small firm. I’m at a 2 attorney firm now and was just approached about becoming a partner. The boss wants to clean up the books so I can review them and we can discuss. Other than professional connections, I have no idea where to turn for info/insight. I’m definitely interested, but obviously this is a big decision, so I don’t think a “partner? Sure, I’m in” is appropriate.
