Minorities in Marketing

Did anyone else lol at some of the suggestions in that “how to increase diversity in agencies” thread on the main bowl last week?

I participated in the conversation. As others have said people’s intent and motivation is in the right place, but I’d say most of the opinions expressed showed how oblivious most people are because they have the “privilege” of never having to spend even one second stressing, worrying, and reacting to the world around them as a POC. We can have all the POCs in D&I positions in the world, but to me those roles are just nice ways for agencies to get good PR. We need real representation of POC in the everyday workforce not just in highly visible roles that were created to tick a box in many cases. I for one have never even gotten an interview let alone a job from meeting and networking with people in D&I roles.

Typed up a huge response then deleted it. I’m over talking about it let’s see the action.

I know the separate bowl allows likeminded to vent, but more D&I conversations need to take place in the main group for this very reason.

That was chaotic. I’m still baffled at that Managing Director...

Any recommendations for MBA consultants? I want to apply using the extended deadline so I won’t have to take the GMAT. Additionally, I have seen a lot of folks here looking to apply to Emory, Darden, among others. Why focus on those schools? Do the tier 1 schools not allow applications during this time? When are the higher chances for receiving scholarships or fellowships, during this round or the fall?
