Producers, what changes are you making in your roles to promote lasting social change? Demanding diversity in reels? Pushing representation in casting? How can we be (and do) better? All ideas are welcome.
We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
What are the best/most respected DEI certifications or programs? I would like to choose one that really walks the walk, and highlights all of the various areas of a diversity wheel to ensure it is well rounded.
Hey teachers! Have any of you ever used the program Transmath? It is a math program for secondary students. I am a high school inclusion special education teacher, and this year I am teaching a math class for some of my students using this program. I would love to hear if any of you have used it before and what it looks like in your classroom! Thank you!
increasingly wary of the concept of "cultural fit". wouldn't you want a diversity of personalities? isn't it important for business to have at least one skeptic in the room?

It’s 2020, are men still expected to pay on the first date or is it acceptable to split 50-50? Not trying to start a whole debate on modern gender dynamics, I just need practical advice.
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially a bigger Chinese presence
Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?
At your firm, how would you say internal initiatives/ ENGs are split by gender? Flipping through some of ours, I’m seeing the majority are women. How can we get men more involved?

Was about to give notice…but then they promoted me. Got a new gig, more money, better company. Been at my current employer for 5+ years and told them about 6 months ago they needed to promote me before they hired additional attorneys so I would be at the same title. It was a few months of promises and “we’ll see what we can do”/ “not sure if it will be before EOY or next feb at bonus time”. So I took calls from recruiters. Shit is crazy here - how do I tell them I’m out?

Help estimating a non-traditional AD freelance rate? Deets: I’m technically a Jr. AD, but I pivoted to advertising after working in marketing + graphic design for 6 years. I’m nearly finished with portfolio school and my portfolio site was strong enough to land me a great internship where I’ve done client-facing work for big brands. Does this make a difference in what I can charge for hourly work? Or would it be considered junior rates regardless? Thanks in advance for reccs/advice! 🙏🏻
Happy to refer to KPMG!

How do you deal with long hours? My current day runs about 9-8/830ish and I eat and then watch some tv and go to bed. My weekends consist of chores and resting because I’m so burnt out and behind. Are there people who make this way of life sustainable?
