Do partners of color actually give you work? There’s only a handful in my office and they are nice to me, even are candid about how white upper management is. But they’ve never thrown any work my way or even gotten to know me on a real professional level which is frustrating because they purport to support diversity initiatives, etc. and I’ve definitely tried to open a line of communication with each of them.
Is it just me or does Highdive only hire male copywriters/CDs? The diversity on their creative team is 1. Very whitewashed and 2. Extremely male dominant. Sad to see.
Thanks for making this bowl all gender inclusive. The other bowl simply was outdated and lacked any kind of diversity whatsoever at all.
Does anyone know if LGBTQIA+ are still unique enough to be a diversity hire? Does being gay get me extra consideration? I am thinking of putting pronouns on my resume and or some type of gay symbol at the top like a little rainbow flag or equality emblem… I do feel like I have had to work harder than straight married with kids types to prove myself… so there should be some benefit here to being gay.
- Though fun posts are invited, keep it decent. Comment red flag in posts you find unhealthy and associated Author will be immediately kicked.
- Lets keep it genuine, no masquerading as opposite gender.
- Safe bowl for networking since all members belong to some reputed organisation, hence ensure no one feels harassed here.
- Plan outings, meet-ups, support each other, share your thoughts/confessions and have fun 🎉
This could work in a great way of stress burster. I mean if we can connect to Likeminded from corporate sector, it's a mother level of great feeling. And if that is of an opposite gender that's something else ☺☺
Anyone use the equinox gym in the printing house? Could use a gym buddy for motivation (gender irrelevant).
Just wondering how many of y’all volunteer at your agency’s Diversity and inclusion committee/taskforce/Ect?
Thank you for joining today’s lunchtime discussion about Diversity in the Workplace! Here’s a link to the notes and resources that we discussed. Look forward to seeing you next week when we talk about work life balance and avoiding burn out with our next Share the Mic! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1llM0kC2dy9MarhKXOrUqkYSYuSRUmo1b/view?usp=drivesdk
The ad industry is legendarily homogenous. Won’t unionizing simply close ranks & protect existing white professionals, who then protect other professionals just like them, resulting in LESS diversity?
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.
Looking for a black male therapist in CA is proving to be a challenge. Anyone here residing in CA with personal experience willing to provide recommendations? I am open to therapists of other gender as well. Thanks in advance.
Anyone else get weirded out when coworkers (of either gender) ask about your love life/if you “have a boyfriend yet” ?
So when brands/agencies make an effort to cast for diversity in creative (race/gender/sexual preference), is it ever genuine? Like "here's how we can drive society forward" vs. pure profit: "here's how we can look good and move units" what have you seen?
Hi! Welcome! What are your positions in an inclusion classroom? How’s it been going so far this year?
I find it weird that we allow individuals to replace hormones if it's to fit their gender identity relatively easily , but we also antagonize taking hormones for muscular growth. Why is one form more acceptable and not the other?
I am looking for 1BHK in a well gated society or single occupancy in 2/3BHK with attached washroom (must) and attached balcony (if available). Furnished/non-furnished is not a concern.

Any leads would be appreciated.
Anyone have a company with dress codes? I am updating our policy for post Bostock decision, and still have 1980s era language about women wearing skirts etc., and men in a suit and tie. To me Bostock means a man could arguably wear a skirt to work. Anyone have gender neutral language they are willing to share? Thanks.

Does anyone feel like PA has made them more of an introvert and less outgoing? I’ve had some rough clients and higher ups over the years that have caused my confidence level to go down. In addition I feel numb with the amount of work and things I have to deal with on a daily basis. Maybe it’s Covid related with the wfh environment but its definitely a struggle. Has anyone else experienced this or something similar?
