Execs holding two C suite titles. What does everyone think of this? With pledges for more diversity in the work place it would seem that instead of one white man holding two C suite titles the leadership and opportunity could be spread out.

Excellent point. Thankfully for agencies, hiring a white woman and putting her in charge of diversity counts as “diversity!”

You have no idea how often diversity in leadership is defined by just gender (white females only) and not by race/ethnicity or anything else. They will push internally at how diversity and inclusion is now moving so fast and successfully. Agency leadership are the worst.

I used to work for an ECD / CEO but it was his company so it was fair enough. He really did both jobs.

In a small company I can see that. For a global agency, not as much.

Advise on handling rates negotiations with BIPOC and non-male creators? I always want to accept first bid and get uncomfortable when my bosses push to undercut rates (especially now when money is tight), because there is a whole history of BIPOC and non-male people getting paid less. I’ve tried to push back but struggle to articulate this to them. (For the record, I’m POC female and my bosses are white males, and race/gender convos are already very difficult with them.)

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
