Diversity in advertising is great, however I think it should also include diversity in opinion/political views. Anyone agree/disagree?

For me and I have republican friends. Sure the economy is ‘doing well’. And ‘the stock market is up’. But morale, decency and decorum have reached a new low from the party of supposed family values. So I ask if the next democratic nominee has 4 ex wives 9 kids combined has maimed his dog and slept with his daughter instead of just lusting her. Do you have any grounds to comment ? Just a question. Let the flogging begin 😬.

VP1, the thing is, diversity initiatives are never sold in as leveling any sort of playing field. They’re sold in as being able to produce better work because of all of the different experiences and points of view that come together on a piece of work. If we are to believe what we are being told, diversity should also include political and ideological diversity, yeah?

Sounds about white

So what, you gonna take a poll and make sure you have enough republicans? Look, diversity initiatives are meant to help level the field for people who are in a class or group that has been historically discriminated against. No one is systematically discriminated against for being fiscally conservative or a socialist or a Bernie Bro.

I didn’t imply you supported him, just said that those that stand idly by while he does his thing, are complicit. Only you know if that applies. And I want no dialog with Republicans, you are correct. I think they are complicit and I’m done being nice about it. Where they stand on issues hardly matters when they are willing to stand and watch atrocities. They do not get to burn the environment down, separate children, decimate healthcare and try to revoke roe v wade and then have a nice tea and debate tax policy or federal land use. Not with me. Those days are gone.

Again, this isn’t a spending issue- in the current state of politics, Republican is synonymous with racist and homophobic and misogynist. If you wanna own up to that fine, but don’t complain when people rightly don’t want to be around you anymore.

likefunny

@360i your list of what’s synonymous with a Republican is what’s being fed to you by the news and /or the guy who is President and not actually a Republican. Instead of grouping them under your 3 adjectives maybe talk to a real one with an open mind and a genuine desire to understand where they stand and how they feel about issues.

I don't see the parallel between gender or racial diversity and political diversity. Not sure how frequently politics come up when you interview, but I don't know how else an employer could let that bias impact their decision (consciously or unconsciously). I also can't think of a reason why most projects would benefit from political opinions...

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best way to respond to "Well, how many people does this *really* affect?" from a stakeholder? This "Marketer" mindset needs to change, and I know my tone immediately changes for the worse when I hear this response. My most recent answer: "It doesn't matter; it only takes one person to file a claim." That was a knee-jerk reaction; I don't want to make it about the backstop the law provides. It's about inclusion informing better experiences for everyone.

Is QEF inclusion dividend or not? Sometimes, I see QEF inclusion reported on Line 11i and sometimes on Line 6a. I think we can rely on Sec. 1293(c) but I think it’s not foolproof. My hunch is since QEF regime is tailored to treat the PFIC similar to domestic mutual funds, we should not treat the QEF inclusion as dividends. Any help is appreciated.
