Suburb in Chicago to relocate to with a one year old...? Looking to buy a house. I’d like: easy commute to the loop, good “downtown” scene, good schools, and preferably some diversity. Thoughts?
I cringe everytime I see a post involving race or gender norms. Like this is why I left Facebook, where am I supposed to go now 🥲
Poll - how many of you are in an interracial relationship/marriage? Age, gender, ethnicity? Again this is not to offend, I am just curious :). Happy to delete the post if anyone feels offended
All these posts in this bowl complaining about POCs, women, and diversity hires. Continue the rending of garments, weeping, and gnashing of teeth. Don’t let me interrupt. Lol!

I was molested by a girl. I told this to a couple of friends and I became a subject of mockery - "You aren't man enough", "Damn a girl came onto you? Lucky", "I don't believe you - that girl's way out of your league"
Is molestation gender specific?
PS - not related to ZS. Just an incident that happened some years ago in college, but still haunts me probably because I could never speak up. I was judged/hushed whenever I tried.
Do people in studios get paid substantially more than other offerings or practice (exploring to switch, thus asking)? what is the average consultant income bracket in studio? I was also wondering if anyone aware of gender centric wage disparity in DUSI?

What compels you? Erhh.. Go...?
So I learned that my banking client has gender sensitivity training and what’s interesting is that if a customer looks like a man, walks like a man, sounds like a man and talks like a man we cannot assume and call him “Sir”. We are supposed to not assume at first and go by a gender neutral reference or no reference at all. Like seriously?
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
Client asked to change icons in the deck to show female icons. They were gender-neutral before...
I’m making the changes, but has anyone else had asks like this?
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?

Do you think the awful events of the weekend will spur a wave of messaging around inclusion? Similar to how we've seen advertising react in the past? I think that's how we can do our part.
We are currently expanding our sales team and while our company prides itself on diversity, I’m not seeing that diversity among the applicants. I’ve posted to LI and reached out to my network. What is the best way to find sales talent at scale to get more women and POC to apply?

Today, FCB Chicago let go of one of three creative directors who are people of color. Yay for diversity!!!
