How do you use children’s literature to support meaningful conversations about diversity in second grade? I’m not just talking about “holidays around the world” or a really great read-aloud by itself.
There is such a thing as diversity and work/life balance in real estate. It just takes some time to find it.
When agencies post pics of their white staff, and boasts that they’re all about diversity, I call BS. A diverse house doesn’t mean the IT person or the receptionist- unless they’re also creatives!:)
Are we just not acknowledging AAPI Month? I haven’t seen any comms. on this and yet our social handles are posting about World Diversity Day? Come on.
If anyone is interested in pursuing an IB summer internship for summer 2023, especially freshman and sophomores, recruitment and preparation season is NOW
How to approach it?
1) Network - send out coffee chat emails to alums or any professional at the firms you want to apply to
2) Prep technicals, behaviorals
3) Insights/Diversity programs - look for any that are still open and apply ASAP if you qualify, they can lead to an accelerated interview process
4) Find when apps usually open

New Spiegel article about lack of diversity at BCG (paywalled). Can anyone provide a TLDR? https://www.spiegel.de/karriere/das-diversity-problem-der-strategieberatungen-a-4437d824-e927-47e0-b925-03919b372189?sara_ecid=soci_upd_KsBF0AFjflf0DZCxpPYDCQgO1dEMph
Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.
