Do you feel, as members of our community in advertising (a privilege we share in having a voice in media but also cultural persuasion) that you should lean into brands taking advantage of the opportunity to capitalize on our community or steer them away from that but also refocus their minds to a more long term diverse creative solution?

Too many gray areas. If it’s a hollow gesture where they’re just capitalizing during pride month, I’d stay away. If it feels genuine, I’d be happy.

I went through a few interviews with the Deloitte Cybersecurity for a manager role. I've been in more senior roles at competing firms. Initially I said no thanks, but after the 4th call they made an initial offer at the top pay of the manager salary range and sent me a link to the application form. It's a 20% pay bump for me. So the question is should I take a demotion for 20% pay bump? Or counter with a lateral move? Is it even possible to negotiate a higher level after interviews are done?

I’ve noticed that many LGBTQ+ people make a point of “coming out” to co-workers or clients when initially introducing themselves. I’ve seen many partnered people do this by working in a casual mention of their significant other, which I’ve always thought was so clever and works even in a largely virtual work environment. As a single person though, it’s something I’ve struggled to do. What are other ways that you “come out” to co-workers and/or clients from initial introductions (or later on)?
