Heard my N+1 referring to me and other Arab coworkers "sand n******" behind our back, right after sermoning our team about inclusion and diversity 🤦🏻♂️
Hey fam, quick question. What are some attributes would you like for people of other races to have if they want to consider themselves advocates of diversity and inclusion (or being “down”)
Have you felt the need to come out to show advocacy and diversity in your classroom? Even if you’re totally comfortable in your personal life, do you feel this need to be out and be an ally?
If your law firm has no attorneys who are female or people of color, I’m not referring cases to your firm. It’s 2020, do better. Diversity needs to stop being seen as “a nice thing to have” and it needs to be necessary to stay in business. Diverse perspectives are how law firms succeed, I want to see more firms that understand that.
LEK London fish, what are your thoughts on the level of diversity in the office? L.E.K. Consulting
I’ve been at my current job for 9 mos. I got a call for another role that would put me as an Associate or Sr. Director at a smallish company (~$3Bn rev) in a new arm. I am an associate at my current company. I am pausing because I’ve only been at my company for 9 mos and I thought I had some goals I wanted to achieve, not really hitting them. And because they have made it clear that I would be a diversity hire. (Cont’d)
Next question (based on a great conversation in 1 of the threads): how do gender roles and expectations play into your decisions about work and family?
A senior managing director at Accenture yesterday said during performance achievement discussions that he was told from his superior (the corporate exec level): "We are willing to sacrifice the growth of the company in order to meet the diversity numbers we have established." What are shareholders supposed to think?!
Is W+K really the fairytale land of diversity in advertising or do they just do a good job of acting like it?
Anyone know how many black people were on Cannes juries this year? I took a quick scan and was pretty appalled. Would love a diversity breakdown of the juries tbh.
Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
EY Intern Poll Results says very few incoming folks care about Salary and Diversity when choosing a company. Is this really true? https://qz.com/1077907/only-2-of-the-interns-at-ey-say-diversity-is-a-key-factor-in-choosing-an-employer/
Is the push for diversity in ad agencies really a push for diversity, or is it a push for better, fairer (and much needed, and deserved) opportunities for Black people? Why no mention of opportunities for Native-Americans, Arab-Americans, Asians, etc? We had a discussion in our agency where one (black) person on the committee that helped move us forward said it was ‘a black issue’ primarily.
All this stuff with Kapernick and taking a knee and all that has got me wondering if we could participate in "corporate disobedience" to protest our agencies' lack of diversity.
What in the world is a Chief Diversity Officer? How is a seven-figure salary offered for this??? Why not just hire ten or fifteen young minorities instead??
Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?
What are other people doing to drive diversity in leadership? I am hiring below me but want to hire at my level. Where do you source outside your network?
😳 thoughts on the comment thread? As a POC I’m tired of all the talk instead of action, including those who may be well-intentioned but at times does feel like posting/calling others out publicly about diversity as just another way to boost their profile and get likes https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6761069109347176448?commentUrn=urn%3Ali%3Acomment%3A%28activity%3A6761069109347176448%2C6761101554541043712%29

Curious hypothetical question: (no merit or source whatsoever) Would you rather lose 1% of your salary to gain extra custodians OR detail clean your classroom yourself?

Is it me or are other associates finding that they are easily distracted while working from home?
What are exit opportunities like at the junior level (pre-Manager) if you’re focused on post-merger integration work? I assume Corporate Strategy is off the table since there are no quantitative skills in this type of work. Really new to PMIs and wondering what they lead to
Hey - question on travel. Any destinations that could work if I was meeting someone flying from the West Coast for an extended weekend (Thu/Fri wfhotel, so time zones matter). Looking for a destination with water (eg Austin) or the hills, but close to a big airport (need direct flights). Lots of parameters, but I’m sure people have planned trips with West Coast friends earlier and I would love some recommendations! Thank you.
